The second Edison plant rebuilt in 1906 after the first exploded in 1903. It produced concrete used in the building of Yankee Stadium and remained open until 1947. The main building has remained in use by other manufacturing companies but the cement and concrete facilities have gone unused since the 50's.

About a mile or so south of 57, yes. At best you can only see the concrete elevators from 57.

Congratulations on the yellow! I really like the high contrast and how the clouds augment the visualization of an abandoned factory.

Thanks, all. When this challenge came up I knew I wouldn't be short of options. Thomas Edison spewed concrete all over the place around here, from building this factory, to laying the "Concrete Mile" to prove the surface could be used for roadways, to building a neighborhood out of cookie-cutter concrete homes. The factory is fenced in and I was debating just how much I wanted to risk trespassing on a Sunday morning, but when the sun broke through the clouds I knew I had a shot somewhere. I guess I got rewarded for carrying the stepladder around in the brush surrounding the place so I could shoot over the fence.
