The future of New York is to become more green friendly and IceStone has been practicing this since the company started—not just in our product but in our manufacturing and business practices as well. Join us for a tour of our factory and learn about our history, surviving Superstorm Sandy, and how we produce our beautiful recycled-glass countertops right here in New York City.

Additional Information:
BNYDC will continue to review and evaluate safety protocols as needed for this event. At this time, face masks are highly recommended but will not be required. The Yard reserves the right to change this policy, and as such, it is advised that all visitors bring a face mask.

BNYDC expects visitors to respect each other’s personal decisions regarding face masks and to respect individual studios and factories that request face masks be worn for entry. These spaces will have a “face mask required” sign on their doors; however, visitors should also be prepared to apply a face mask if a business owner requests it.

It is further expected that all visitors will respect the face mask requests of business owners or BNYDC staff without delay or complaint.

Smoking is only permitted in outdoor areas at least 100 feet from all building entrances and not allowed indoors or on intra-Yard shuttle buses. Smoking is also not permitted in designated seating areas or areas where family games and activities are set up.

This experience is offered during OHNY Weekend as a part of Factory Friday, a series spotlighting makers and manufacturers to give New Yorkers a behind-the-scenes glimpse at local production. Factory Friday is presented in partnership with Made in NYC.
