Scott Jordan, whose workshop is in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, for example, told the Gray Lady that sales of his $2,600 sleeper sofas and $3,000 beds have actually risen of late. In fact, because of demand from small businesses like this, the Navy Yard plans to add another 1.5 million square feet of space and another 2,000 workers in the next two years, recession be damned.
