Three Appetizing Events

This fall, 92YTribeca has a tasty menu of daytime events scheduled—check it all out at—and three of the most appealing ones have to do with our favorite things: food and/or Tribeca. We asked the speakers/guides to whet our appetites even more.

courtesy-joyce-goldTribeca: New Diversity from an Industrial Past “The doyenne of city walking guides,” Joyce Gold, will lead a historical tour of the streets around 92YTribeca at 11 a.m on Thursday, Oct. 8. Ms. Gold, what’s an interesting historical fact about Tribeca that most residents don’t even know? “Have you ever wondered why there’s a strange juncture of streets at Hudson Street? In the late 18th century, two entities owned most of the present Tribeca. Because of this, the neighborhood today has two separate street plans and set of street names, with Hudson Street the divide between them.”

(Plus: samples!) Ms. Segan, what’s the most delectable, must-not-miss item of food in Tribeca right now? “Just one??? Can’t be done! Here are my fave five: 1) Fig soufflé at Capsouto Frères; 2) Wichcraft’s goat cheese, walnut pesto, and watercress sandwich; 3) Bazzini’s roasted cashews; 4) Tribeca Treats‘ peanut butter and jelly cupcakes, made with homemade raspberry jelly; 5) Bouley Bakery’s pear-and-chocolate croissant.”
