PT 109[edit]

What does the paragraph on PT-109 have to do with this article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.230.201.203 (talk) 02:17, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Title[edit]

Who, looking for the Brooklyn Navy Yard, would find it here on the first try? Why does Wikipedia so often pick the more obscure title when more than one is available? Can someone fix this? --Wetman 05:45, 9 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I moved it. I hope it's OK with all. Yossiea 20:36, 27 December 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia articles should not contain large chunks of source text[edit]

The proposal that was recently added to this article (and which I removed once, to have it added back) does not belong here. As a source document, it more properly belongs on WikiSource. Please remove it from this article and consider submitting it there. Kelly Martin 01:24, July 18, 2005 (UTC)

Second paragraph[edit]

The second paragraph is essentially lifted from the 1939 WPA Guide to New York. It should certainly be cited.

The "CAN DO" Yard[edit]

I would like to add to this article a note that the Brooklyn Navy Yard was known as the "CAN DO" yard. I vividly remember seeing the signs maybe even on the Brooklyn Bridge. However, I cannot find any references to this nickname.

Maybe another reader can help?

Update needed, current usage[edit]

"The 250,000-square-foot Green Manufacturing Center will be completed in spring of 2016. A renovation of the 1,000,000-square-foot BLDG 77 should be complete in 2016. Construction of Dock 72, a 675,000-square-foot office building, is scheduled to begin in 2015[17] and to be available in 2017."

I looked into this myself, but wasn't sure where the best place to find updated info to update this section would be, so wanted to flag. StarM 02:47, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
