“Farragut Housing Community”

 
New York City Housing Authority operates the Farragut Houses. It comprises 10 non-sequentially numbered buildings with 10 families on each floor, standing 14 stores in height (14 floors). Originally built for military families during wartime, all walls are made of concrete embedded with lead and 1½ inch-heavy steel apartment doors. They are titled, “The Projects”. All major bus lines, subway lines, and bridges start here. The Farragut Houses; titled after Admiral Farragut, a Navy Officer. The basement of each building was designed to be nuclear fallout shelters.  
 
 

“Formerly, the buildings had a pair of odd & even elevators until late 70’s, everything onsite through-out a maze of buildings, floor levels and apartments. (laundry, in-house store, playgrounds, community office) The buildings use to incinerate trash.”

~ Per “Original family Names”  Old Timer. 

 
 
Farragut has over 2300+ members in their Facebook groups. They get together for Old Timer’s Day and celebrate the neighborhood newbies and old-school folks. Sometimes they attend picnics in Commodore Barry Park near Fort Greene neighborhood, attend a private yacht cruise around the borough with fireworks and dancing on-board or, watch movies together on the Jumbotron. This happens once a year in the summer of August for two or three days in a row. The New York City Police Department (84th precinct Brooklyn) barricades the streets to allow “Brooklynites” visiting from miles around and across the globe to attend block parties (Sands Street).
 
 
 
We have an old saying, “Wherever you go, there’s always someone from Brooklyn”. A very close-knit community near the Brooklyn Navy Yard which contain several businesses. The Brooklyn Navy Yard Today is the center of urban manufacturing and innovation. A one-of-a-kind ecosystem that spans 300 acres, housing 500+ businesses, and employing 11,000+ people.
