The Department of Sanitation Salt Shed which sits at the intersection of Canal Street and West Street is an award winning structure. Designed by WXY and Dattner Architects, the 70-foot tall shed that sits along the Hudson River was apparently inspired by the shape of grains of salt. The structure can hold structure houses 5,000 tons of salt!
