From Fulton Market to Gansevoort Street:
One Granddaughter’s Remembrance of Her Family’s Storied NYC Meat Business
Before the HighLine, before all the tony shops, galleries and restaurants in Greenwich Village’s “Meatpacking District”, there were the meat businesses. What did these firms do exactly? Where did they go? And what did they contribute to the reputation of New York as purveyors of world class steak? Jacquelyn A. Ottman, 5th Generation New Yorker, will answer these questions and more when she shares her own remembrance of a business that formed an integral part of her family for five generations. Ottman, a ‘school break’ veteran of the business herself, will take us inside the walls of what is now One-Three and Five Little West 12th Street (and the business that preceded it in Fulton Market), providing architectural, historical, cultural, and personal perspectives on NYC’s meaty past, her family’s business and the lasting contribution its pioneering ways made to the way we all eat today.
