Eat the City: A Lecture by Robin Shulman

Hear surprising tales of the meat and sugar industry of Greenwich Village, as Robin Shulman, author of Eat the City, takes a tour through hundreds of years of basic urban food production. Shulman shows the neighborhood’s love for meat long before the genesis of the Meatpacking District and the High Line, and the area’s launch of some of the largest and most important sugar producers in the Americas. Her book Eat the City has received accolades in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and elsewhere. “Impressive,” said the Wall Street Journal; “one of my favorite books of the year,” said the Village Voice, which named it a Best Food Book of 2012. Eat the City has also been selected as required reading for all entering first-year students at NYU in 2013.
