Farragut Houses sit in a quiet, isolated patch of DUMBO, Brooklyn tucked next to the Navy Yard. It’s a working-class community of primarily African-American and Hispanic residents. When the development was built in the fifties, manufacturing plants dominated the neighborhood surrounding it. In recent years, the nearby DUMBO district has gentrified rapidly and is now home to a thriving arts and culture scene complete with art galleries, cafes and the upscale Brooklyn Bridge waterfront park.
