A side-view of Building 74, formerly Army barracks, from Magruder Road is shown in this photograph. Prior to the destruction of the Laboratory campus, roughly half of Building 74 had been used by Laboratory staff as overflow offices and laboratory space. After the fire, the National Park Service made the remaining half of the building available to dislocated Laboratory staff. The 35,000 square foot building became the Laboratory headquarters in 1987 when NOAA announced that rather than closure or relocation, the Laboratory would stay on Sandy Hook, New Jersey. The building subsequently underwent renovations that were completed in 1994. The text on the sign facing Magruder Road is "U.S. Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Marine Fisheries Service, Northeast Fisheries Center, Sandy Hook Laboratory."
