56th Street Round Table: From Markets to Carts: Street Foods of New York


Whether purchased from stalls, trucks, or "street criers," food vending on the streets of New York has a long and rich history. For this 56th Street Round Table, our speakers will explore the intersections of food and urban development. From pushcarts and tenement housing to food trucks and high rises, we'll discuss how today's street foods help preserve NYC's food identity while revolutionizing how and where we eat our daily meals.

Speakers:
Zach Brooks, Founder, Midtown Lunch
Rebecca Federman, Culinary Collections Librarian
,The New York Public Library

Robert Lavalva, Founder and President, New Amsterdam Market
Jane Zieglman, Curator, The Tenement Museum Food Series
