Staten island 在Richmond terrace有个盐厂 Atlantic salt, 给纽约市提供大部分除雪用盐。
3：30开始到傍晚八点半，卡车一辆接一辆地载着盐驶出。 盐从船到卡车只要一分钟，一个小时可以装满60个卡车。装满盐的卡车开往卫生局，分装在橘红色的袋子里。 使用的时候不会和沙混合，相比沙，盐不会堵塞下水道。
每年会在盐厂会举办LUMEN艺术展 , 今年在6月。
Brooklyn 有个糖厂 Domino sugar，最近挺热闹。因为要被拆新建了。最后做SHOP的方案。
Domino sugar 在布鲁克林的工厂1859年开始，是全美最大的糖厂，工厂2004年关闭。
On Staten Island near Richmond terrace, there is s a Salt factory called Atlantic salt. It provide snow melting salt for New York city.
Every winter, on the pier of Staten Island will be a 20m tall salt hill. Cargos ship 60,000 cubic m salt from Chile. It takes 3 weeks to ship the salt and need a week to unload all the salt.

Brooklyn has a Domino Sugar, recently gets quite popular. Because it going to be demolished. SHOP did the proposal.
Domino sugar was built in 1859, is the largest sugar factory in the States. The factory has been closed since 2004.
The new place is no doubt a gentrification site.
While the sugar factory is gone, the salt factory is still there. When Staten Island has connected subway, the salt factory will be moved as well.
