Atlas Obscura New York City’s Hidden Taxidermy Studio

Located on an unassuming industrial block in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, there’s no sign of this taxidermy studio to be seen from the street. Unless you count the people carrying deer, foxes, birds, butterflies, and other wildlife (domestic pets, too) in and out of the building. 

Yet, this overlooked art studio is keeping the dying art of taxidermy alive and well.
