Wallabout, Brooklyn

Wallabout is an area in the New York City borough of Brooklyn that dates back to the 17th century. It is one of the oldest areas of Brooklyn, in the area that was once Wallabout Bay but has largely been filled in and is now the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It is a mixed use area with an array of old wood frame buildings, public housing, brick townhouses and warehouses. It is bounded by Navy Street to the west, the Brooklyn Navy Yard to the north, Myrtle Avenue to the south and Classon Avenue to the east. The Lefferts-Laidlaw House was built about 1840 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
