Learn more about one of New York’s oldest and most prevalent residents, oysters, at a discussion hosted by the Brooklyn Historical Society. Oysters are extremely beneficial to New York as they serve not only as a delicious snack but they also filter sewage, to protect the shore from intensifying storms and educate scientists. Join Brooklyn Historical Society Vice President of Collections and Curatorial Affairs Julie Goliain conversation with Billion Oyster Project Director of Education Ann Fraioli, chef and oyster farmer Kerry Heffernan, and Mark Kurlansky, author of The Big Oyster: History on the Half Shelll, to “examine the bivalves’ pivotal place in the story of New York, beginning with Lenape cultivation and continuing to today’s ambitious plans to build artificial oyster reefs.”
