Health and Sanitation in 19th Century New York
Catherine McNeur talks about her book Taming Manhattan: Environmental Battles in the Antebellum City. She focuses on the hog and swill milk industries of the early 19th century. Run primarily by poorer immigrants, these industries faced pressure in the 19th century as wealthier New Yorkers pushed for more health and sanitation regulations. The Museum of the City of New York, the New York Academy of Medicine, and ARCHIVE Global co-hosted this event. close
