History

Today, the intersection of Concord and Duffield Streets is a study in seclusion—a haven of tree-lined quietude in the midst of bustling Brooklyn—and surrounded by history. Just a few blocks from where the Concord Condominiums stands today is Brooklyn Navy Yard. Built in the 19th century, it employed 70,000 workers during World War II, though the last warship launched in 1965. Today 8,500 people work in the revitalized waterfront complex, filming motion pictures and Netflix shows at Steiner Studios, prototyping for companies like Honeybee Robotics, roasting coffee at Brooklyn Roasting Company, harvesting produce at Brooklyn Grange’s rooftop farm, making whiskey at Kings County Distillery, and more.
