The Waterfront That Sugar Built

Havemeyers & Elder's Sugar Refinery in the 1880sThe rebuilt Havemeyers & Elder's sugar refinery in the 1880s, reconstructed after the devastating 1882 fire.

Francis Morrone discusses the history of sugar refining in New York and the fight to preserve the Domino Sugar Refinery in Thursday's Observer. An interesting point that we had not considered before: with the closing of the Domino refinery in 2004, 2005 was the first time in 275 years that sugar was not produced in New York City (dating back to the founding of William Bayard's refinery in 1730).

I thought that there was still a Domino factory operating in Yonkers.


There is - but Yonkers is not part of NYC!
