Last days of a Shipyard: Oral Histories, 2005

Theme curated by: The Red Hook WaterStories Team

In 2004 zoning changes cleared the way for IKEA to create a store on the old Todd Shipyard. The following year IKEA closed the shipyard and the New York Shipyard Company, which had taken over the site from Todd, closed up shop.
In the last days of the shipyard, PortSide taped several oral histories about the shipyard on site.
