The Revere Dome's Final Days

Revere Almost Gone

There is very little left to say about the destruction of Red Hook's Revere Dome by Thor Equities. A New York Times story about Red Hook this weekend noted that "All along the waterfront are reminders, functioning and not, of Red Hook’s industrial past. One recently dismantled, to the anger of preservationists fighting a development, was the former Revere Sugar Plant’s silo. A sunken lightship, its masts stretching above water near the silo for decades, was also removed." For the record, "preservationists" are not "fighting a development," as no development has been announced, although many people are saddened and angered by Revere's slow death. For now, the Red Hook is just another Thor Equities demolition long in advance of any proposals, approvals or construction.
