Urban Appetites: Food and Culture in Nineteenth-Century New York
Wed., September 17, 6:30-8 PM
Elebash Recital Hall

Cindy Lobel chronicles the emergence of Gotham’s food industry in the nineteenth century, taking readers on a lively tour of oyster cellars and fine dining establishments, public markets and corner groceries, brownstone dining rooms and tenement kitchens, Broadway houseware stores and Lower East side pushcarts. By the 1900’s, New Yorkers had access to the most diverse and abundant food supply in the nation. But as the city and its food became more cosmopolitan, corruption, contamination, and inequity kept apace. Urban Appetites shows how New York's growth changed the way its people ate, and how the way New Yorkers ate changed the way the city grew.
