After additional research, it looks like it may be Wallabout Union Freight Station serving PRR, NYC/West Shore, LV, B&O, CNJ, & NYO&W at Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Not DL&W.  No lines in the NY Navy Yard.

The attached photo, shows a freight yard (DL&W?) adjacent to the Wallabout Markets and the New York Navy Yard in NYC, dated 13 March 1941.  Several box cars are in the image including NYC 39271, C&O 5361 and CN 403863 (reweighed 5-40).  Enjoy,
