Location Photo/Film Shoots

The Navy Yard accommodates various types of location shoots, including feature films, small independent productions, music videos, commercials, photo shoots and documentaries. Many of these productions choose the Navy Yard because it is a controlled environment and no permits are needed. We allow shoots in vacant spaces that we control along with the many exteriors and open space under our jurisdiction. Our fees are flexible and are based on several factors including size, length and type of shoot. Liability insurance is required. Contact us with any inquiries or call 718-907-5920.
