Richman Bros. Factory Exterior, 2015

Officially closed in 1992, the Richman Brothers factory on East 55th Street has been tenantless for over two decades. While ownership has changed hands many times over that period, no reuse project for the site has been able to gain traction. A fire spread through the upper floors of the factory in 2011, although the damage went undocumented. Now a distorted homage to a once thriving industry, the factory's presence on East 55th has gone from a point of pride to one of despair for the Goodrich-Kirtland neighborhood in which it sits.
