Last Revere Sugar Remnant Coming Down

Revere Smokestack One

As the huge demolition project undertaken by developer Joe Sitt and Thor Equities in Red Hook approaches 11 months, the last remnant of the old Revere Sugar plant that is still visible from a distance is on its way down. These photos of the tall smokestack were taken this weekend, and a big crane is on site during the day dismantling the smokestack brick by brick. From the west side of the property, you can now see clear through to Sunset Park. (In fact, you can see the gates of Green-Wood Cemetery with a telephoto lens.) From Beard Street, meanwhile, the Statue of Liberty is now visible.
