Brooklyn Navy Yard Water Tower

Technically this is across the street from the Brooklyn Navy Yard and not actually in the facility but close enough. The Navy Yard was founded in 1801 by the US Navy for shipbuilding and such famous ships as the Monitor, the Maine, and Robert Fulton’s steamboat Fulton were built here. The 300 acre facility was decommissioned in 1966 and is now home to a variety of commercial and industrial businesses including Steiner Studios, the 2nd largest film studio in New York City (after Silvercup). The Producers and Spiderman 3 were shot at Steiner.
