Feeding Gotham: New York City Markets, 1790-1860
CULINARY HISTORIANS OF NEW YORK
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH MOUNT VERNON HOTEL MUSEUM & GARDEN
PRESENT

"Feeding Gotham: New York City Markets, 1790-1860"
with Gergely Baics

Thursday, January 26, 2012

As New York City grew into an Atlantic metropolis, food helped to sustain that growth. Changes in the city's markets affected the living standards of all New Yorkers, altering household consumption and transforming daily social interactions in public spaces.

Early 19th century populations soared, and by mid-century deregulation began to affect location of markets, which correlated less and less with the location of the population. Social inequalities regarding food access became linked to residential segregation based on class and ethnicity. Other regulations and new health issues further impinged upon the social fabric. Gergely Baics will discuss inequality of food access to 19th century New Yorkers and some parallels with the "food deserts" of today.

Gergely Baics is an Assistant Professor of History and Urban Studies at Barnard and Columbia. An economic historian, his interests include modern urban history, 19th century American social and economic history, trans-Atlantic population and migration histories, and social science history methods.  

The reception will feature a tasting of dishes made from period recipes.
