NBC News published this video item, entitled “New York Oysterman On A Mission To Restore Tradition” – below is their description.
You might be surprised to learn that oysters were once a popular New York City street food. The carts were omnipresent – and one of the most prominent purveyors was a Black man named Thomas Downing. A century later, Moody, who sells oysters in Brooklyn and on Governors Island, is carrying on that tradition. He’s part of a larger push to fight pollution and restore oyster reefs in New York Harbor.NBC News YouTube Channel
