Brooklyn Cartografix
I'm designing Brooklyn tees based on open-source maps, to help raise awareness of our city's waterways and green spaces.
Bridges of Brooklyn

This shirt features the piers of the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Wallabout Bay, framed by the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges and the DUMBO and Vinegar Hill waterfront.<br><div> <div><br></div> <div>The Brooklyn Navy Yard was used to build and repair huge warships beginning shortly after the Revolutionary War. Today, the site has been redeveloped as the home of numerous commercial enterprises, including <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steiner_Studios">Steiner Studios</a>.</div> <div><br></div> <div>On the southwest corner of the Navy Yard sits <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiral%27s_Row">Admiral's Row</a>, a series of buildings dating back to the Civil War, which housed naval officers before the Navy departed the Yard. These buildings are in varying states of disrepair and the odds of preservation seem slim, in light of City plans to tear down most of the structures and replace them with a supermarket.</div> <div><br></div> <div>Most of the Navy Yard is not open to the public, but you can visit the museum at <a href="http://bldg92.org">BLDG 92</a> or take a tour with <a href="http://turnstiletours.com/tours/brooklyn-navy-yard/">Turnstile Tours</a>.</div> <div><br></div> <div>[<a href="http://teespring.com/stores/brooklyn-cartografix" title="Link: http://teespring.com/stores/brooklyn-cartografix">click to see our other Brooklyn Cartografix designs</a>]</div> <div><br></div> <div> <b>Proceeds from the sale of this shirt will be donated to the <a href="http://www.myrtleavenue.org">Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership</a></b><b>, which is unaffiliated with this project.
