Amazing as it is to imagine now, New York Harbor may have once contained half the world’s oysters. Over time, however, many oyster beds died off due to pollution and over-consumption. Learning from this history, Urban Oyster was founded on the belief that, like oysters, the neighborhoods of New York are treasured resources that require nurturing and cultivation in order to survive and flourish. Through dynamic hands-on tour and event experiences, Urban Oyster aims to connect people to the local treasures of this great city, and in doing so, promote an appreciation for the neighborhoods we inherit. Our Tours and Events explore how we can live in neighborhoods today in ways that support and value local production and consumption, cultural diversity, historic preservation, and sustainability for the benefit of generations to come. We hope you'll join us for a tour or event!
After you visit the famous Brooklyn Brewery and Other Half, join us off-the-beaten path at some of the smaller local breweries in the city like Bridge and Tunnel Brewery located way out in Ridgewood, Queens. The owner/brewer Rich Castagna built the brewery himself and makes lots of different beer styles all with names referencing personal or local history.
