Calm Before the Storm (a Blog)

Alright....March 30th....(I've posted pictures before, but I thought since almost everybody posts pictures, I'd post a blog. Hope it doesn't bore anybody. Some of you could probably relate. Enjoy! Don't worry, if you don't read through it, I won't hold...

The Zimmerman Slaughterhouse and Meat Packing Building, located at 4th & Fairmount in Northern Liberties, has several terra-cotta steer heads adorning the top of it. At the time that it opened in 1911, the Zimmerman ranches were bringing over 40,000 cattle to market each year. Think Upton Sinclar's "The Jungle". Several years ago it was converted to condos.

Yeah, and the condo owners will be scared by the cattle ghosts mooing in the dark ;-) Nice heritage for the residential building.

i was gonna say! cool photo of an interesting place, but youre never gonna find me living in a former slaughterhouse, hahaha...

are they "nice" condos?

I live there - starting today.
The cow steer heads looked fantastic - I had never seen that before. I'd seen gargoyles, chimeras, lionheads etc but never this.
Right after I signed the lease I asked the agent about the history of the building and then it all fell together and my life apart. lol

It doesnt help that the bedroom in the basement has no windows.
There are door hinges all over the loft and metal hooks on the ceiling.

Besides that the place is great. The loft is huge and everything is new.
The terra cotta steer heads will look great with blood effect on Halloween.

Dig Dug


The backhoe operator saw me taking photos and showed off by reaching really close to me and snatching up a giant scoop of dirt. Too bad my shutter has so much delay, haha. ,
