Where’s Waldo? Williamsburg landmarks you should find
Eye on Real Estate
Hipsters. Hasidim. Hispanics.
With so much to keep track of on the streets of vividly diverse Williamsburg, some of the landmarks in the waterfront neighborhood might have escaped your notice.
It’s a bit like walking through a picture in a “Where’s Waldo?” book. The historic buildings are there, but you must look carefully to find them.
Of course there is one Williamsburg landmark that most Brooklynites know on sight: The Domino Sugar Refinery. Cyclists and subway commuters see the factory with the tall smokestack, perched along the shoreline, as they cross the Williamsburg Bridge. Riders on East River Ferry boats that pass Billyburg also get an eyeful of the refinery at 292-314 Kent Ave.
