Revere Sugar Refinery (NYC)
The Revere Sugar Refinery, once owned by Antonio Floriendo, a Marcos family confidant known as the "Banana King of the Philippines", declared bankruptcy in 1985, and the refinery has been in magnificent ruins since then. A fire some years ago devastated it. The property has been recently purchased, so the refinery may soon be a memory.
