Industry City just got that much cooler.
The putt-putt course, which will be part of the seasonal Wheelhouse bar and restaurant, will feature over-sized models of Brooklyn landmarks.
“They’re pretty good renditions,” Wheelhouse owner Angela Krevey told Brooklyn Paper. “People, during the summer, are looking to get outdoors and just do something fun and casual — it’s a hoot."
The nine-hole course, which will be located in the back of the Industry City courtyard, features the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower, Coney Island’s Wonder Wheel, The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, the Brooklyn water tower and the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel. There’s one hole that gives a nod to the Gowanus Canal as it utilizes pieces of an old row boat that will was found in the canal.
Participants can purchase access and pick up their putters at the nearby Helm Bar, a lobster spot, which also rents out ping-pong paddles.
Still, the putt-putt course compliments the complex’s latest eatery and watering hole. The Wheelhouse entrance sits right next to the course.
Krevey, who operates another popular seasonal restaurant called The Frying Pan on Chelsea Piers, transformed an old tug boat that was retired in the late 1960s. She chose the Industry City courtyard for its infusion of new and old.
“We loved the old industrial feel,” Krevey told the Brooklyn Paper. “We love that kind of feeling of being in the courtyard. It felt like it was on the High Line, but not really.”
