Inside the Domino

Jinx Magazine, a journal of "urban exploration" (read: sneaking into places protected by barbed wire), chronicles a mission inside the Domino's Sugar Plant in Williamsburg that's just been sold to residential developers. Two stories above the Domino's sign, nostalgia sets in: "Looking at the factory below us, I felt a sense of melancholy and loss at never having known the New York of a century ago, when all of Williamsburg was filled with the same temples of industry. I love the Williamsburg of today, with its thriving culture and energy; but surely there is something that is lost with every factory closure, something that I've never known but that I miss anyway."
