Nuncy Russo's Beer Garden
Trenton Evening Times, April 4, 1934
Although it is known that this building once housed a tavern, this is the first advertisement found indicating it was a beer garden. The R&H Brewing Company operated in the Stapleton neighborhood on Staten Island. R&H switched to near-beer during Prohibition before going back to regular beer in the 1930s. R&H was bought out by Piels Beer in 1953. Piels closed the R&H plant and the brand entirely a year later.
