Domino Park – Tacocina

Yesterday, we went on a little adventure to Domino Park in Williamsburg (in Brooklyn). This new park opened in June and was created in the ruins of the Domino Sugar Factory. Designed by the same firm as The High Line (James Corner Field Operations), this water front six acre green space is a terrific new addition to the city. Although we froze our bottoms off, it was great fun to run around, breathe fresh air, and look at the views of our incredibly beautiful city. I can’t wait to come back on a sunny Spring Day (which will not happen for half a year….)

 

These cranes previously occupied the site remain, and have been painted in the park’s signature turquoise.

Tacocina — a Danny Meyer outdoor restaurant — that serves only tacos.

Turquoise — what’s not to love — and with tacos — hello, I am in love.

Taco time. (When is it NOT taco time?)

yup. tacos.

 

To look at more pictures, go here. This park is definitely worth checking out!

  1. What an awesome idea! I love that they made a park out of the old dominoes sugar factory.
