Today’s self-storage, yesterday’s cold storage

March 11th, 2013

Anheuser-Busch owned an "ice manufacturing plant and cold storage warehouse" on this property in the early 20th century, although I'm not sure if these structures, which are currently filled with self-storage units, were part of that facility or if they were built later on. Either way, they were very likely used by Anheuser-Busch at some point, as the company had a longtime presence on these properties fronting Brook Avenue around 164th Street.
