Starting from the 1850s, this area of the Brooklyn waterfront hosted a plant that processed remains of dead animals (mostly horse carcasses, hence the name "Dead Horse Bay") into glue and fertilizer. Later, from the 1930s to the early 50s it was used as an active landfill. Since then, the man-made beach at Dead Horse Bay has been slowly eroding away, revealing the artifacts of that era. As plastic weren't the main material back then, the beach is covered mostly by glass utensils.
