You know Steiner Studios, the giant Navy Yard film complex that livery cars will occasionally sneak through on the way from DUMBO to Williamsburg? (Can we reroute that bike lane, already?) Yeah, that’s Doug Steiner’s joint. In a move some saw as “totally crazy” Steiner spearheaded the rehabilitation of the Navy Yard back in 1999, slowly converting his “little” corner of the former shipyard into an enormous, state-of-the-art film studio. Over a decade later, the studio shows no signs of slowing down, hosting blockbuster productions, creating educational partnerships with both Brooklyn College and Carnegie Mellon, and setting an aggressive employment goal of 6,000 jobs over the next decade. So Doug, seriously, that bike lane?
