Sugar Factory - Brooklyn - New York City by 


During the period following the Civil War, New York was the top provider of refined sugar to the United States, and for a period of time the Domino Sugar factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn was the largest sugar refinery in the world. At one time, the factory employed over 4,000 workers and processed 3 million pounds of sugar a day.

This is an image of the Domino Sugar factory as it appears today.

    Vivienne, Nice shot. I had no idea New york was producing that much refined sugar! I used to live where I could see that Domino sign, and directly above was a digital clock that would have the current time.

  • For some reason I never got a notification that there was a comment on this image. That’s really interesting. I love the Domino sign so much. What a view!
