Really Cool Photo: Inside the Dry Dock

June 25th, 2006 · 1 Comment

The amazing photo below is from Gowanus‘ flickr photostream. It is a shot taken inside the dry dock at the Todd Shipyard, which is rapidly becoming the Ikea site in Red Hook. Ikea wants to fill in the historic drydocks for parking.

    Glad you like the photo!

    Yeah, the shipyard will soon be completely flattened. Most of the warehouses are gone and the construction site is busy with workers (and guards!) night and day.

    A working piece of the waterfront demolished for cheap furniture and a parking lot….

    Heres a contact email for your readers:
