Red Hook Update: Sugar Falling From the Sky

The Revere Sugar Plant in Red Hook is slowly coming down. This weekend, workers in a lift several stories up were stripping off the exterior, by blowtorch and hand. Loud booms and the sound of crunching metal were coming from ground level where Revere was being crushed into dumpsters. A dozen holes have already been cut into the conical dome. Looks like the plant will be reduced to a steel skeleton before being completely demolished. More demo pics after the jump.
