Revere Dome Relocated to Gowanus!!!

Revere Dome in Gowanus

So, we were walking in Gowanus after shooting photos of the last few standing remnants of Red Hook's Revere Dome and of the thunderous process of tossing its remain in dumpsters. We had watched truck after truck drive off dumpsters full of metal, wondering where they were taking the dome, which is being demolished by Thor Equities. We looked up, recalling there is a scrap metal yard on the Gowanus, only to see a Breeze Demolition truck pulling out. Lo and behold, we found where the Revere Dome parts have been going: to a scrap yard on the Gowanus, where they are eventually put into a barge and floated away. So, if you're at the Smith-9th Station and standing on the Coney Island-bound side, look down. That big mountain of scrap metal you see? Part of it is the former Revere Dome.
