“At its core, Brooklyn is a city of makers. From our history of large scale manufacturing to the artisanal innovation economy of today, the Navy Yard has seen it all and continues to be a driving force in our borough’s economy.  Hank Gutman is a fantastic choice to serve as the next Chair of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, where he will be able to build on the accomplishments of Alan Fishman and continue the Navy Yard’s effort to promote local economic development and create jobs.”
