What you can expect
A century ago, Irving T. Bush built a monumental, intermodal warehousing and distribution centre on the Brooklyn waterfront employing 25,000 people. Ridiculed as “Bush's Folley” at the time, Bush Terminal would soon become a major international seaport. But by the 1960s urban manufacturing entered a decades-long period of decline as most major manufacturers closed their doors.
Fast forward to the present. An investment of hundreds of millions of dollars has transformed 16 factory buildings with 6M sq ft of space into Industry City - a thriving micro-economy of hundreds of innovative businesses.
