Staten Island Ethnic Foodways and Food Deserts

Professor: Michael Batson
ITF: Kamili Posey
Campus: College of Staten Island

This project marks a collaboration between Michael Batson´s and Catherine Lavender´s Seminar 2 course. This project investigates 12 ethnic food communities on Staten Island and gives individuals familiar with the rich cultural diversity of New York City a chance to see that diversity through the often overlooked lens of Staten Island. The students for the course served as the primary researchers for the site and did firsthand fieldwork in the following communities: Dominican, German, Greek, Irish, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Sri Lankan, South Korean, Ukrainian. Some work was done investigating Staten Island´s West African community, but more country-specific work should probably be done here. We hope you enjoy the site!
