Wallet Card at a relic of an NYC slaughterhouse

When I posted the remnants of the West Side Highway sitting in a park along the Hudson River in midtown Manhattan, I mentioned that they were not the only historical oddity located in the park. Near those wing friezes were several large stone cow heads. Most were in boxes but this one was completely out in the open.
The heads, each weighing over a ton, once adorned the facade of the New York Butchers' Dressed Meat Company Building, built in the 1900s and torn down in the early 1990s.
