Significance: The Bethlehem Steel Company Shipyard played a major role in the shipbuilding industry within the harbor of New York from the time of its development in 1890 until the time of its closing in 1984. This shipyard was occupied by the W. & A. Fletcher Company, a national leader in the construction of steamboats and steam engines, between 1890 and 1929. The yard was operated by the Shipbuilding Division of the influential Bethlehem Steel Company as a ship repair facility from 1938 until 1983.
