At the Domino Sugar Refinery

By now, there are likely thousands of photos posted around the internets from the open house (factory?) at the Domino Sugar Refinery earlier today. (Every person I saw there had a camera.) So here are a few more shots. As you probably know, developers want to turn this iconic factory from the 1880s north of the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn into pricy condos and what not. Neighborhood activists wants to see the riverfront property preserved and redeveloped as affordable housing.

(No one was allowed inside, of course. Still! Here's what it looks like from that vantage point.)

good that you snapped those pictures, because that whole area is headed to condoville.
