New York Rubber Company
The New York Rubber Company’s operations were located in Beacon, New York. The company manufactured a number of items, among them, tape. Along the banks of the Fishkill Creek, the New York Rubber Company’s once proud buildings now stand crumbling to the point of collapse. The main three story structure is fronted by an even taller tower with decorative columns protruding slightly from its surface. Just about every pane of glass is broken and inside, the structural damage to floors and ceilings presents a dangerous situation for anyone foolish enough to wander around. Perhaps some of this damage is a result of what a life-long local resident described as 'frequent explosions' at the factory. It seems during its operation, loud booms reverberated throughout the area - "There goes the tape factory!" was the common reaction.
