Event Description
Making It Here: A Local History of Flavor

Doors open at 6:30 pm, program begins at 7:00 pm


Historian Nadia Berenstein will uncover the local history of flavor manufacturing — from the docks and slips of lower Manhattan at the turn of the 20th century where essential oil merchants and spice grinders peddled their aromatic wares, to Midtown Manhattan flavor laboratories in the 1930s and 1940s where chemists developed new synthetic specialties, to the present-day flavor factories just across the river in New Jersey. In addition to sharing some stories of flavor companies and the people who worked for them, Berenstein will consider the factors — commercial, social, educational, and geographic — that helped make New York and the surrounding region the heart of the $25 billion flavor industry.


Nadia Berenstein, historian and doctoral candidate in the History and Sociology of Science at the University of Pennsylvania
