Knish History
Join journalist and knish devotee Laura Silver as she traces the American history of the humble potato dumpling. She'll discuss the arrival of New York knisheries in the early 20th century on the back of Jewish European immigration, cover the 1916 New York Times–reported “knish wars” of the Lower East Side and touch on the effects that Mayor Giuliani’s 1990s street-cart regulations had on sidewalk knishes. Cement your newfound knowledge with samples from Knishery NYC and Brooklyn-based Adelman's.
