“Situated in Brooklyn Bridge Park, Empire Stores is one of the few remaining 19th century warehouses that once lined Brooklyn's waterfront. Erected between 1869 and 1885, Empire Stores housed countless tons of coffee, sugar, jute, animal hides, and many other commodities when Brooklyn was one of the largest commercial waterfronts in the world. Redeveloped and reopened in 2017, Empire Stores is now a hub of food, culture, and tech with BHS DUMBO as the sole cultural institution in the complex.” Paragraph from:
