    Sweet Ruin: The Brooklyn Domino Sugar Refinery

    I'm going to be launching a Kickstarter campaign in the next couple weeks for my book project. It's a documentary / art / history book on an iconic Brooklyn factory that's just been demolished.

    I realize everyone here has their own projects to fund—I don't want to be the guy who's hitting up his fellow artists for lunch money. But I think we can all support each other's projects by helping spread the word. If you know anyone ... friends, family, organizations ... who might be interested in the book, could you pass on a link? I think this book would appeal to people interested in industrial landscape photography, American industrial history, or Brooklyn nostalgia.

    If you have a Facebook account, a Like on the project page helps out a lot (sad to say).

    I'll post the actual Kickstarter link when the campaign goes live.

    Thanks so much any help!

    I loved that place Paul...I lived across from it in Manhattan. I'm sure some condos will take its place. Man, it must suck to be a film maker
    looking for gritty waterfront scenes in NY these days...all been gentrified. Looks like you have some interesting images there.

    I don't know beans about Facebook even though I have an account.

    I went to your page, "liked" it & wrote a comment FWIW.
    While there noticed that your "likes" increased by 4.
    So you must be doing something right.

    Good luck, it's a very interesting building and a wonderful project.
