Summary

Significance: The boiler shop is the oldest extant building on the site. It represents a common type of construction used in single-story plants. This class of industrial architecture followed general period trends toward more fire-resistant and spatially-efficient forms while differing in detail from multi-story factory designs. The boiler shop contains several significant machines, including pyramid plate bending rolls.
Survey number: HAER NY-272-A
