Food City by the late Joy Santlofer shows us the amazing history of manufacturing in this case food manufacturing in New York City Nowadays we don t associate New York with manufacturing but as recently as 1950 it was one of the largest manufacturing centers in the country Reading about this lost past is a fascinating exercise even if there is much less manufacturing in the city todaySantlofer begins with a brief overview of the food history of the city under the Dutch and then the English This introduction culminates in what sets the framework of the book a parade celebrating the ratification of the Constitution held in 1788 in which various food trades marched in groups These included brewers chocolate makers butchers bakers and many Santlofer does an outstanding job here and elsewhere in the book evoking the atmosphere of the time she s discussing whether the 18th Century or the 20th The reader practically feels like he s there watching the paradeThe rest of the book is divided into four major sections each covering one type of food bread sugar drink and meat In each section Santlofer weaves together descriptions of the food making processes from raw materials to marketing and sale and descriptions of the city at various times including its physical atmosphere and the ins and outs of politics especially as food affected its physical atmosphere and politics affected food Naturally the predominance of ethnic groups in eating patterns manufacturing and politics features freuently Plus there are enough descriptions of manufacturing euipment to satisfy a die hard fan of the TV show How It s Made without the descriptions becoming overly technical or tedious For example I now know why sugar was sold in cones in blue paper the refined sugar was a thick liuid that was poured into cone shaped molds and dried and the blue paper made the sugar look white And there is much where that came fromSo the book is full of fascinating anecdotes In fact the book is basically a series of anecdotes That s not a criticism the anecdotes are well chosen illustrative and hang together in service of the common themes of the book It s amazing to know for example sticking with sugar as my example that sugar manufacturing was a huge business in New York for centuries Sugar was of course intimately connected with the slave trade since the raw materials for making refined sugar were produced by slaves in the Caribbean under conditions far worse than the terrible conditions of the American South Cotton was not the only American industry that relied on slaves just the one that did so most obviously Naturally the sugar barons of New York opposed the Civil War fearing disruption of their economic interests both from the disruption of trade and from slavery potentially ending The Roosevelt family made its fortune on sugar beginning prior to the Revolutionary War and going through the Civil War which they opposed of course something that is ignored today since they are liberal heroes But it is good to remember that Franklin Roosevelt s jaunty mien had foundations of slave bonesSantlofer also covers the common problem of maltreatment of workers by owners Of course when owners maltreated workers it was in order to get money and what money would buy including social acceptance That doesn t mean that owners were necessarily or even often rich In many instances they were barely surviving themselves one thing that comes through very clearly in Santlofer s book is how intensely competitive all aspects of food manufacturing have always been in New York An owner might have to work grueling hours himself living in sualor himself while his employees did the same just to stay in business But of course there were those businessmen who especially as factories got bigger some Manhattan factories occupied entire city blocks divorced themselves from manual labor and from the actual operation of their businesses and lived in luxury yet still demanded that the workers compete among themselves and against lower priced labor if it could be found to accept the lowest possible wagesThe book ends with the decline and fall of food manufacturing in New York as the high costs of real estate and taxes along with snooty locals no longer desiring manufacturing in their proximity combined to drive manufacturing farther and farther out eventually away from the city and the area entirely Santlofer concludes on a positive note focusing on the rebirth of artisanal food manufacturing from bread to pickles although of course those foods are sold to the same wealthy people who drove out old style manufacturing which provided jobs and decent lives to hundreds of thousands of people who did not and do not eat artisanal bread A little research does show that after decades of steep decline manufacturing is on the uptick in New York City with several thousand jobs having been added in recent years all in small manufacturing businesses of various types But in 2016 only 79000 people worked in manufacturing in the entire NYC metro area One can never tell though perhaps there will be a wholesale renaissance of manufacturing in America and perhaps it will once again be led by New York Alices Sexual Discovery in a Wonderful Land past is a fascinating exercise even if there is much less

Food City Free read ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub New York is hailed as one of the world’s “food capitals” but the history of food making in the city has been mostly lost Since the establishment of the first Dutch brewery the commerce and culture of food enriched New York and promoted its influence on America and the world by driving innovations in machinery and transpo. Santlofer s book was finished after her death so as such there is a sense of unfinshedness about it It is still a very good book about food in NYC The book is divided into food types as opposed to straight historical era It is an engrossing and at times funny read
