  • In this poster from Central Park Brewery we see the head of a horned, bearded Billy goat looking out from a red, white rimmed medallion. Underneath the goat’s head is a large gold rimmed steer horn. The company name appears at the top of the poster, with the address listed at the bottom. Interestingly enough this address is not located very close to Central Park.
     
    The Central Park Brewery operated for 14 years, from 1892 to 1906. During the time of its operation, New York City was an active brewing city with 220 breweries open for business.
     
    Goats were often seen in Central Park during the turn of the last century. In the early 1900’s goats pulled children through the Park in carts. During the 1930’s, The New York Times reported that a goat beauty contest was held in Central Park, with the winner, Pretzels, nabbing the $75 prize. According to the New York Public Library, the word “Gotham” is borrowed from a reference in old English proverbs to “a village called Gotham or Gottam, meaning ‘Goat’s Town”.
