Turnstile Tours' “Making It In NYC: Inside Industry Tour”

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In timing with the New York Travel Festival, Turnstile Tours and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92 will be hosting a “Making It In NYC: Inside Industry Tour” on Friday, April 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tickets are $20 per person. Advance registration is required. The tour begins and ends at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, located at the corner of Flushing and Carlton Avenues in Brooklyn.

This 90-minute guided tour begins at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92’s Making It In NYC gallery, an exhibit that explores a new era of manufacturing in New York City today. Participants will then head out into the Yard for an immersive look at “making it” then and now at the Yard.

Featured businesses on the April 17th tour include:

SITU Fabrication: (@situstudio) Bringing design, fabrication, and research under one company, Situ’s team is able to tackle complex building challenges using a wide variety of tools, materials, and approaches. In their fabrication space, depending on which project they are working on, attendees might see how their metal workers construct sculptural elements for an artist’s installation, how they craft complex shapes using their robotic 5-dimensional router, how plastics are molded for interior design pieces on their thermomolder, or how they designed and built the “Making It In NYC” exhibit in BLDG 92.

AHeirloom: (@a_heirloom) Founded by husband and wife team Amy Stringer-Mowat and Bill Mowat, AHeirloom manufacturers a variety of wooden home goods, though they are best known for their cutting boards shaped like the states. Thanks to digital design tools and computer-controlled machinery, they can make these complex shapes – and even add custom details like your hometown or an inscription – quickly and affordably.

NYTF ’15 attendees can apply the discount code “NYTF2015″ toward the cost of the “Making It In NYC: Inside Industry Tour” along with other Turnstile Tours’ offerings now and throughout May. To purchase tickets, visit this link.
