Little Necks and Cherry Stones:
A Conversation about the Past, Present, and Future of Clamming in New York
While you may not know it, clams have been an important part of New York City culture since the 19th century, when they became a staple of the New Yorkers’ diets. The resurgence of clam shacks and bars is keeping the clam alive in present-day New York. Unfortunately, amongst all of this popularity, the livelihood of Long Island clammers is increasingly endangered. Join culinary historians, folklorists and working baymen for a discussion of clam culture, then and now.
