About the Brooklyn Tech Triangle
The Brooklyn Tech Triangle is made up of Downtown Brooklyn, DUMBO, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. These three neighborhoods combine to become a magnet for creativity, culture and innovation in Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Navy Yard
This 300-acre industrial park sits right on the Brooklyn waterfront, and was once the site of one of the nation’s most storied naval shipbuilding facilities. Today it is home to over 330 industrial businesses employing 7.000 people. Run by the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC), the Navy Yard’s investments in new green buildings and infrastructure have become a national model for sustainable urban industrial parks.
Downtown Brooklyn is a world-class business, cultural, education, residential, and retail destination. The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is the not-for-profit local development corporation responsible for managing over 1 million square feet of public space and facilitating investment and infrastructure to support the areas cultural and community assets.
