Shop, Eat and Explore at Industry City
Industry City is a self-described “innovation ecosystem” in South Brooklyn, welcoming travelers and residents alike to shop, eat, and also explore its 35 acres of converted industrial space. Once known as Bush Terminal, Industry City was initially a 19th-century warehouse and distribution center.
It is Brooklyn’s arts as well as amusement destination within a former industrial storage complex along the waterfront in Sunset Park. From the southern-facing windows and western facing courtyards, you can spot the Statue of Liberty as well as take in an unhampered view of lower Manhattan and also 1 WTC. Developed from 16 historic manufacturing buildings, it is a walkable campus that organizes over 30 food vendors, including a Japanese food hall and market, a varied retail program, rotating art installations, and regular performances and live events. Open 7 days a week, Industry City is one stop from Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn and three stops from Union Square in Manhattan.
Industry City has developed over the past decade into something of a cultural and foodie hub. The eight formerly abandoned city-block-sized buildings, running from 33rd to 37th Streets between Second and Third Avenues, are currently home to artist studios, workspaces, great shopping, art exhibitions, a chocolate factory, a Brooklyn Nets training facility, an international food hall, and even a roller rink.
Throughout the week, the courtyards and dining establishments in Industry City often tend to be ruled by the young workers who report to numerous offices and workspaces in the complex. Yet weekend breaks bring an increase of shoppers, food-lovers, and young families for a one-of-a-kind mix of preferences, sights, art, and family programming. Hands down, it’s one of our favored areas to spend a summer season weekend early morning or a wet winter season afternoon. From sunset yoga classes to taking a trip art exhibits, you will certainly find a reason to visit this unique space.
