Umbrella Factory

The blue cinderblock building on the Greenpoint side of the Kosciuszko Bridge finally has a designation. Worldwide headquarters of Conch Umbrellas. Makers of New York Siteseeing Umbrellas (Day and Night) and the Reflective Safety Umbrella (patent pending) with built in reflective tape around the umbrella's perimeter. Not a bad idea.


  1. Yes! I noticed that and meant to email you about it...but I should have known you would not miss it. I also love how they seem determined to keep that building totally blue and clean. Suspect that Dan could tell them the how and why it is a futile endeavor.

  2. Totally blue not for long. The white skeleton of a billboard was going up yesterday. A Zywiec bottle? I'll keep you posted.
