Let Urban Oyster take you down to the water to reveal the amazing past and present of food along the waterfront. This truly unique experience celebrates that New York's waterfront was once the home of food being shipped in from around the world, teaming markets where New Yorker's shopped, and major food production plants that fed the country. Today, waterfront neighborhoods are being reinvented by a new breed of entrepreneurs. On the tour you'll visit new artisan markets, chocolate factories, historic restaurants, and brand new shops where you'll taste a host of delicious treats while you learn amazing stories about the waterfront.
Beyond Food and History, the neighborhoods that we are visiting are the very ones that were inundated and devastated by Super Storm Sandy. You'll be able to see the damage and recovery first hand. Additionally we are visiting the same places that are struggling to recover so you'll be able hear their stories and contribute directly. A donation is built into the price of your ticket which will go towards the ongoing recovery efforts.
