Westbeth Community Room, 155 Bank Street, between West Street and Washington Street
[This venue is wheelchair accessible.]

Before the HighLine, before all the tony shops, galleries and restaurants in Greenwich Village's "Meatpacking District", there were the meat businesses. What did these firms do exactly?  Where did they go? And what did they contribute to the reputation of New York as purveyors of world class steak?  Jacquelyn A. Ottman, 5th Generation New Yorker, will answer these questions and more when she shares her own remembrance of a business that formed an integral part of her family for five generations. Ottman, a 'school break' veteran of the business herself, will take us inside the walls of what is now One-Three and Five Little West 12th Street (and the business that preceeded it in Fulton Market), providing architectural, historical, cultural, and personal perspectives on NYC's meaty past, her family's business and the lasting contribution its pioneering ways made to the way we all eat today.

6:30 – 8:30 P.M.

Tompkins Square Park, in the Park on the North side, at the Slocum Memorial Fountain
[This venue is wheelchair accessible.]

More than 1,000 New Yorkers perished on June 15, 1904 when their steamboat burst into flames on the East River. The greatest loss of life in New York before 9-11, it has been said that the Slocum Disaster of was the end of the German community in the East Village. Two years later the oft-overlooked Slocum Memorial Fountain was installed in the park. Join us as we recognize the 110th year since this monument was installed. After a brief presentation there will be a 1 hour walking tour of what was then referred to as Kleindeutschland  or “Little Germany,” as we visit sites of importance to the historic German-American community around the park.

The walk will be guided by Edward T. O’Donnell, historian, author, tour guide, and Associate Professor of History at Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA.  He is the author of Ship Ablaze: The Tragedy of the Steamboat General Slocum and several other books.  This event is co-sponsored by the Lower East Side Preservation Initiative, Friends of the Upper East Side Historic Districts, South Bronx Unite and Manhattan Borough Historian Michael Miscione.
