The Power House

April 4th, 2013

According to a sign here in Mill Pond Park, this remnant of the Bronx Terminal Market "was built between 1925 and 1927 and was crucial for the preservation of perishable goods. The building housed ice-making equipment and a machine shop, and helped to maintain temperature-controlled food storage in the Wholesale Market and Storage Building." It has since been incorporated into the park, and now contains offices, restrooms, and a café, among other things.
