Emmy Award-winning writer and former New York Times "The Ethicist" columnist Randy Cohen brings his popular podcast and public radio show, Person Place Thing, to BHS. Cohen will interview restaurateur Andrew Tarlow about a person, place, and thing that have been meaningful to him. Person Place Thing is an interview show based on this idea: people are particularly engaging when they speak not directly about themselves but about something they care about.
Tarlow is widely recognized for pioneering the artisanal food movement in Brooklyn. Most recently, he and his partners launched the Wythe Hotel and its ground floor restaurant Reynard in Williamsburg. Other Tarlow restaurants in Brooklyn include Diner, Marlow & Sons, and Roman's. He also opened Marlow & Daughters butcher shop and publishes Diner Journal, a quarterly magazine with original art, literature, and recipes.

When & Where
Brooklyn Historical Society
Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) functions as a library, museum, and urban education center dedicated to the people of Brooklyn, providing opportunities for civic dialogue and thoughtful engagement. Each year, 70,000 students and teachers use our innovative programs and resources to learn about American History and scholars conduct important academic research in our Library and Archives. Through partnerships with government and community groups, BHS reaches communities throughout New York City, serving as a hub for information and ideas about Brooklyn and its complex history.
Housed in a magnificent Landmark Building in Brooklyn Heights, designed by George Post in 1878, BHS maintains an important collection of historical manuscripts, books, photographs, maps, paintings, objects, and ephemera dating back to the 17th century. BHS is a long-standing yet modern institution in both outlook and action. We are Brooklyn’s preeminent history center, responsible for preserving and presenting Brooklyn’s history; our collection continues to grow through the acquisition of contemporary and historical works of art, photographs, documents, books, and oral histories.
