The Havemeyer family acquired the site and built the original refinery in 1856. By the time the 1870’s rolled around the plant manufactured more than 50% of the nations sugar. A fire in 1882 destroyed the original plant, but it was quickly rebuilt.  After operating for some 148 years the plant closed in 2004. For more information on the domino sugar plant check out

Read All About It: Pay Phones Still Exist in NYC!!

Walking along the streets of NYC it seems impossible that you run across a payphone much less one that works. Your chances decrease even further as you venture into Central Park. The advent of the cellphone has lead to the decline in the popularity of the payphone. Despite this there are still some 14,560 payphones in NYC.

As I was walking in Central Park one day I came across this phone. I did some post processing in order to come up with the final images you see here. I look forward to hearing what you think.
