  • You've got to *sea* this *boat*-ful #PhotoOfTheWeek! ⚓️⛴🌊 This photograph comes from the Anthony Costanzo Brooklyn Navy Yard collection (ARC.023). Costanzo was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and served in the United States Army Air Force during World War II. In 1963, he moved to New York City for college, eventually taking a job as a Public Information Officer for the U.S. Department of Navy at the #BrooklynNavyYard. He would remain in this position until 1966 when the Navy decommissioned and closed the yard. . . . . . . 
The United States government first established the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1801. For the next century and a half, shipyard employees constructed naval vessels. By 1938 it was providing jobs for over 10,000 people. Several historic ships were constructed or launched at the Navy Yard such as The USS Arizona, the USS Missouri, and the USS Antietam. . . . . . . 
The Anthony Costanzo Brooklyn Navy Yard collection contains materials documenting the last years of the Navy Yard’s existence through 1966. For more information, check out our finding aids and galleries online! . . . . . .
