Domino Sugar Refinery
Domino Sugar Refinery
The Domino Sugar Refinery is located in Brooklyn, New York City, USA.
 
Domino sugar was produced by the American Sugar Refining Company. The refinery started out in 1882 and was the largest of its kind in the world.
 
The site halted production in 2004 after 148 years of operation. During it's lifetime the business survived strikes, a fire and even an explosion accredited to German agents in 1917.
 
The complex was given landmark status in 2007 as it is a significant part of Brooklyn's skyline. It has lay dorment ever since although there are plans to develop the site into luxury apartments.
 
Tours of the inside of the factory come around very rarely, but when they do they are available from NYC's Office of Tourism. Boat tours of the outside of the factory are available from:
