East River Anchor

This mid-19th century anchor sits at rest in the John V. Lindsay East River Park, near Grand St. No one knows what ship it's from; it was pulled out of the East River at some point and donated by the Schaefer Brewing Company in 1970.

Incidentally, I had no idea that Shaefer was originally a New York-based brewing company.
