The Atlantic Salt Company, located on the north shore of Staten Island, was founded in 1955, and it produces the road salt that keeps you from sliding into the ditch on snowy or icy days. They furnish the road salt for New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut.
If interior design is more your thing, the current site of the Atlantic Salt Company was originally the J.B, King Plaster Mill. Founded in 1876, it produced supplies of gypsum wallboard, cement, plaster, drywall, paste paint and other fireproofing materials. U.S. Gypsum purchased the J.B. King Plaster Mill in 1924 and operated until 1976.
Kill Van Kull might sound like a villain in the next James Bond movie, but it’s actually an important waterway. It’s a tidal strait that runs between Bayonne, New Jersey and Staten Island. A major conduit for ocean-going container transportation, it connects Newark Bay and Upper New York Bay, and is one of the most heavily traveled waterways in the Northern U.S.
The Bayonne Bridge connects New Jersey to Staten Island across the Kill Van Kull. As ships grew bigger and taller over the years, they couldn’t travel parts of the Kill Van Kull because they were taller than the bridge. The solution has been to dredge the waterway to make it deeper, and when that wasn’t enough, they raised the bridge in 2017.
