Lafarge Plant

Industrial plant on the New Jersey side of the Kill van Kull strait, seen from the Snug Harbor Dock in Staten Island.

I believe the tall towers belong to a company called Lafarge, which makes construction materials like ashpalt and concrete. Their website says, "Lafarge is committed to providing products using sustainable manufacturing practices and improving the environment in and around its plants. Through myriad projects at locations around North America, Lafarge has worked to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, restore wetlands for native plants and animals, and identify waste materials that can be recycled and used at Lafarge plants." I didn't see much evidence of that around this particular plant, which is just one of doszens along a stretch of the New Jersey coast which is miles and miles of giant industrial plants.

That's the World Trade Center in the distance.
