Exploring the Historic Meatpacking District

With Jacquie Ottman

[In-person tour] Although today’s Meatpacking District is known for its trendy restaurants and avant-garde art, it had been New York’s meatpacking hub for over a century. How did this now landmarked area evolve over the course of 400 years, and what remnants from its rich past can still be seen today? Join native New Yorker Jacquelyn Ottman – a fifth generation member of one of New York City’s pioneering family of butchers – to experience the legacy of the Meatpacking District.
