Inside the Ruins of Possible Bull’s Head Tavern on the Bowery [PHOTOS]
As we reported yesterday, preservationists are worried about current demolition at 50-52 Bowery, a site some local historians believe once housed the fabled colonial-era Bull’s Head Tavern. It is here, possibly where George Washington frequented, that Peter Poon Architects will eventually dump twenty stories of hotel living for neighborhood transients. How fitting. Preservationist Adam Woodward snuck into the site to document the ruins before they themselves are ruined.
If validated, this worksite could be one of the most significant New York archaeological finds in recent times.
Below are a few photos from his jaunt:
