BROOKLYN RECLAIMED WOOD FROM BROOKLYN'S BLISS BUILDING

DUMBO HISTORIC DISTRICT

135 Plymouth Street

Date Salvaged:  08/2016

Wood Species:  Yellow Pine Foor Joist and White Pine Beams

Notable Fact:  The DUMBO Historic District, located along the East River waterfront in Brooklyn, is one of New York City's most significant extant industrial waterfront neighborhoods.  The approximately 91 buildings in the district reflect important trends in the development of industrial architecture in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th centuries. During the early part of the 19th century the neighborhood was residential but in the 1830s and particularly in the decades following the Civil War, it became increasingly industrial.  Brooklyn was a major American industrial center in the second half of the 19th century and first decades of the 20th.  It was the fourth largest manufacturing center in the country by 1880.  Among the manufacturing businesses that were especially prominent in Brooklyn were those producing machinery, paint, sugar, coffee, packaged groceries, paper boxes, and shoes, all of which are represented in the buildings in DUMBO.  At the turn of the century, 135 Plymouth St. was occupied by the E.W. Bliss machinery factory.  Eliphalet W. Bliss was born in Fly Creek, NY where he apprenticed at a local machine company.  After service in the Civil War, he moved to Brooklyn and in 1867 established a machine works which eventually became the E.W. Bliss Company.  He manufactured machines, tools, presses, dies and sheet metal.  135 was designed by Rudolphe Daus and constructed in 1900-01 in the Romanesque Revival style.  The building has seven stories with brick façade with stone trim; steel and cast-iron columns, steel girders and open joist floors.  By 1884 the Bliss Company was considered the largest factory of its kind in the world.  During the early part of the 20th century the factory occupied over 186k sf and in 1912 employed 1646 people of which 15 were women. In 1933 (Mr. Bliss died in 1903) the company moved manufacturing to Ohio.  In 1936 the Bridgeport Paper Company leased a portion of the property.  A painted sign on Adams Street, at the corner of Plymouth Street, records the presence of the Waring Envelope Company.  The sign is still visible today.  For decades the Bliss Building has been owned by the same family and is a residential and commercial property.
