Frederick G. Zinsser was a resident of Hastings-on-Hudson, New York who opened a chemical plant on the waterfront of the Hudson River, producing a wood alcohol known as Hastings Spirits. The plant was sold to Harshaw Chemical Company in 1955.[1]

The Zinsser plant attracted Hungarians, Poles, Hungarians, Czechs, and Russians who immigrated for work.[1]

Zinsser Park, in northwestern Hastings between Broadway and the Old Croton Aqueduct, is named for him. [2]
