There are THREE good reasons you should come to the talk tonight.
1. Turnstile Tours will be offering a 20% discount on their WWII tour of the Navy Yard this weekend and next for all attendees!
2. Cumberland Packing has donated a huge bag of sweeties, including Sugar in the Raw.
3. I HAVE CHOCOLATE CAKE for every attendee.
It’s already going to be packed with people, but I want too excited to keep these things to myself. Presale tickets are done, but you can buy at the door for $10. See you tonight.
The Pearl Harbor Sandwich: Food at the Brooklyn Navy Yard
Thursday, February 28th, 7pm
The Brooklyn Historical Society 128 Pierrepont Street Brooklyn, NY
Tickets available here!
The Navy Yard has long been one of the most mysterious and exclusive parts of Brooklyn: from the hollow, watchful windows of the houses on Admiral’s Row, to the secure-locked gates of the modern industrial parks. In this talk, you’ll get a backstage pass to some of the secrets of the Navy Yard, using food as lens to understand the yard’s history and its future. A modern grocery store will soon replace the mansions, and the locked gates lead to the largest roof top garden in the country. Where did the sailors who occupied this space eat their dinners a century ago, and where do the artists go to snack today? Food is rooted to the past of the Navy Yard, and it is also a symbol of its regrowth. Snacks will be provided!
