German immigrant Peter Ohmeis was a New York restaurateur and beer merchant during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A typically exhaustive account by Walter Grutchfield observes that this small Bronx building "seems to have been used ... as a stable beginning around 1908."
On this day a bright green notice, one of many, cautioned against parking nearby; the TV series Gotham, which is set in a city with the dress and conveniences of modern-day New York but the gloom of Victorian London, would be filming elsewhere in the neighborhood. (Where, precisely? I'd place my bet on the interior of one particular restaurant.) For another production, however, imagine a horse-drawn beer wagon — that arched doorway is just wide enough to let it pass.
