The Domino Sugar Refinery is a landmark building that was integral to the development of the Brooklyn waterfront throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the structural remains are emblematic of the rich history of America’s Industrial Revolution and the New York City of old.
In 2018, the first element of the Sugar Refinery’s redevelopment project opened to the public with Domino Park. The five-acre green space gave New Yorkers access to that waterfront along the Refinery for the first time.
This public photography exhibition, installed at the foot of the Domino Sugar Refinery, explores the rich and complex history of the Refinery, through a combination of historic and contemporary photographs.
