First Street and Bowery

First Street and Bowery

First Street and Bowery, ca. 1930

Leon Dolice

In 1879, the brewing of beer, ale, and porter by the English method, which did not require refrigeration, supported over 78 small brewing companies in Manhattan alone. The Stuyvesant Brewery, shown here in a 1930s etching, was one of the few that survived the decimation brought to the industry by Prohibition. The brewery was located near First Street and Bowery.
