The Stone Street Oyster Festival served as our official “Kickoff” for NYOW 2012. This event is Manhattan’s largest outdoor oyster festival. Over the past two years, NYOW successfully recycled a large number of oyster shells from this event which were collected by students from NY Harbor School and used for Oyster Reef Restoration Programs in NY Harbor and beyond.
