“Heroes of the Knish” Closing at City Reliquary
May 7 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm| $5
The City Reliquary is saying farewell to its exhibition Heroes of the Knish: Making a Living and Making a Life. This show traced the history of the iconic New York City street food from its origins in Eastern Europe to its arrival in the US with Jewish immigrants, to its popularization through early knish makers such as Mrs. Stahl, Mano Hirsch, Ruby the Knishman, and Yonah Schimmel.
Send off the knish in style with live music from All That Jazz (Rachel Levine on vocals, Christopher Bandini on guitar) and a curator’s talk from Laura Silver, author of Knish: In Search of the Jewish Soul Food.
We’ll serve an international spread of knishes and knish cousins such as dumplings from Vanessa’s Dumpling House, pierogi from classic Greenpoint spots, and more! (Suggested donation: $2/item.) Beverages available by suggested donation, with beer courtesy of The Brooklyn Brewery.
