Crunch time for old factory

The former Wheatsworth Factory, 444 E. 10th St., built in 1927, was where Wheatsworth crackers and Milk-Bone dog biscuits were once manufactured. One of the few remaining East Village buildings constructed for industrial use, it is being considered for landmark designation by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. The Art Deco/Viennese Secessionist-style factory was built for about $1 million. National Biscuit Company acquired Wheatsworth in 1931. Now known as Nabisco, the company sold the rights to Milk-Bone dog biscuits in 2006 but still makes Wheatsworth crackers.
