Product Description

Of all the things that New York City is famous for, food production isn’t at the top of the list. However, Robin Shulman takes the unlikely story of New York’s food production and brings it out of the shadows and into the larger context of the city’s history. With humor and insight-laden language, Shulman shows us how New York goes about feeding people has contributed to how the city was built and how people made lasting connections among the sprawling masses. Food is both inherently personal and universal, and Shulman shows how this fact has helped create a sense of community in the big city.
