Leveled over two years ago by developer Thor Equities, the Revere Sugar Refinery on the Red Hook waterfront still boasts one major reminder of its past. Over time the lonely relic on the edge of the site has taken on new life (albeit not new uses), even scoring the occasional tribute. We were surprised when the building's preserved facade turned up in some draft renderings of the mega-mall being considered for the site, but alas, Amy Langfield points us to a demolition permit issued for the Beard Street building in early July. The clock is ticking. Like grains of sugar through an hourglass, so pass the days of our Red Hook lives.
