Brooklyn Navy Yard Tours

Alex is a born and bred New Yorker who currently resides in his home borough of Staten Island with his wife, son, and dog. Alex earned his M.S.Ed. in adolescent special education as a New York City Teaching Fellow at Long Island University after graduating from New York University with a bachelor’s degree in history. Alex formerly worked as the Youth Advocate for the Groundswell Community Mural Project, a Brooklyn-based non-profit that connects youth with artists to paint social justice murals throughout the five boroughs (including at the Brooklyn Navy Yard).

Alex is also the Senior Educator at the Brooklyn Historical Society, overseeing their K-12 educational programs, including their programs at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92. An avid student of the history of social justice and civil rights movements, Alex leads many of our World War II Tours of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, weaving together the story of servicemembers on the battlefields with the challenges and triumphs of workers on the home front.
