The complex was developed by Irving T. Bush as Brooklyn’s first major industrial, shipping and distribution center. It became so successful that it helped to spur the economic and industrial development of the entire borough. Industry City is within walking distance of the D, N and R MTA subway station at 36th Street. Convenient parking is one block west of the building.
