[VIDEO] Museum of the City of New York Shares New York City's Rich History With Oysters

The Museum of the City of New York, as part of its new New York at its Core exhibition, tells the history of New York through oysters, the original "IT" food item. This teaser video from the museum introduces you to the City's rich history of oyster fishing, farming, preparing, and consuming over the past four centuries.

In a very real sense, the history of New York City is the history of the oyster." Dive into the story of one of New York City's most integral animal residents, featured in our newest exhibition NEW YORK AT ITS CORE.
