Syrup tanks

"The Syrup Tanks – dating back to the 1950s – are four of the fourteen large-scale tanks that were used to collect high volumes of liquid sweetener generated in sugar processing. These tanks were originally located on the south west corner of the Refinery building.


Domino Park is a 6-acre public park in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. It spans a quarter mile along the East River near the Williamsburg Bridge, at the site of the landmarked former Domino Sugar Refinery.


An elevated walkway extends much of the length of the park, resembling the interior of the old refinery. The crane tracks that were used in the original refinery now houses gardens with roughly a hundred different species of plants. All wooden structures and chairs in the park were built using reclaimed wood from the refinery."
