Pacific Beef Co.

Constructed for the Hammond Beef Company of Fort Greene1, the richly-decorated (and heavily-eroded) brownstone decoration includes a steer's head in the keystone of main arch. This building was one of many along North 6th Street that formed the nucleus of Williamsburg's meat packing district from the late-19th century forward.
