In historic places, NYC History, nyc photographer on July 16, 2014 at 10:56 pm

In a few more hours I will have scanned all the negatives from my trip to the Domino Sugar Factory in Williamsburg Brooklyn.  Here is a sample of things to come.

In a short time this building will be torn down and replaced by luxury hi-rises.

I hope you stop back to see the history and beauty of this old building through my images.

 

Until next time.

Main Bridge Span Demolition: East 78th Street

In NYC Today on August 28, 2011 at 8:48 pm

Main Bridge Span Demolition: East 78th Street from teresa kruszewski on Vimeo.

In the overnight hours of July 30-31, a team of 26 men removed the 70 year old footbridge at East 78th Street. The FDR Drive was shut down from 2:00am-7:00am. During that period the bridge was lifted in 2 sections by one crane.

These men worked with such precision and sense of timing, a perfectly choreographed dance.

I had the privilege to work with this team, photographing the total demolition. This movie has been created from 1000 still images.

Thank you to all the men and women who participated in this historic event including Ferreira Construction Co., INC, The NYC DOT and the neighbors at East 78th Street.

 

Until next time.
