Wegmans Site Clearing Begins
After months of anticipation, site construction has begun in the Brooklyn Navy Yard for the home of New York’s first Wegmans. Currently the site is being cleared of trees and old debris, including most of the Admiral’s Row naval officers’ housing that has been vacant since the 1970s. These have for the most part yet to have been torn down and can be seen in the distance in some of the photos below:

Wegmans will be hiring up to 600 employees for their new store, which is scheduled for completion in 2018. Check back in for more updates as site construction progresses!
