Long Abandoned, Bay Area Hunters Point Navy Shipyard Can Be A New Base


Recommended Posts

Today, as a few lucky San Franciscans prowl the long-abandoned Hunters Point naval shipyard during the Hunters Point Shipyard Artists Open Studios event, defense advocates are pouring over maps, trying to identify coastal sites in the Western United States that might be viable for a future naval shipyard or base. More than a few are eying the long-abandoned Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco as a candidate for re-opening.

From afar, the site looks great, but, as a litigation-ensnared Superfund site and a center of early Cold War radiological experimentation, Hunter’s Point is no place for a modern naval shipyard—unless the Navy reverses course right now and embarks upon a bruising fight to retain, refresh, and reactivate the facility.
