The Officers' Houses (aka Admirals Row) are a series of ten Greek Revival and Italianate rowhouses that were built for the commanders of the Brooklyn Navy Yard during the mid-to-late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Following their abandonment during the 1970s, the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation targeted them for demolition as part of a redevelopment of the site. However, federal ownership, coupled with a prior determination of eligibility for National Register listing from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, meant that any potentially adverse effects to the historic properties would need to be considered and mitigated in accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. As part of the mitigation process, Gregory served as the project manager and author to complete Historic American Building Survey (HABS) Level II documentation of the buildings, which consisted of writing a description and a statement of significance for the row, compiling archival drawings, and supervising Trix Rosen Photography to photograph the buildings.
