Description


In celebration of their recent American citizenship, Komar & Melamid, formerly of the Soviet Union, have undertaken a project to glorify Bayonne, New Jersey and its Bergen Point Brass Foundry. BERGEN POINT BRASS FOUNDRY, BAYONNE focuses on the foundry which dates back to 1890. During World War I, it played an instrumental role in supplying parts for the U.S. Navy. At one time, the foundry employed several hundred people, mostly Eastern Europeans, but presently the number of workers has dwindled to 35.
