BROOKLYN - The century-old Russ & Daughters market, an icon of Manhattan, will be setting up shop at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The market announced that it will have a manufacturing space and food hall in the yard. It's part of the Building 77 renovations that are costing $185 million -- about $80 million of which is coming from the city.

Russ & Daughters will anchor the ground floor. Navy Yard officials say its presence will attack the next generation of food manufacturers to the space, potentially adding thousands of new jobs.

City officials say the renovation work should be completed by next year and will bring about 3,000 jobs to the community once it opens.

Russ & Daughters has been operating for 102 years and specializes in smoked fish, caviar and baked goods.
