As I started watching this “Animated History of the Hamburger video that New York magazine released yesterday, I was worried. The video is fairly short – less than two minutes – and I was wondering if they’d acknowledge New Haven’s Louis’ Lunch. We all know the historical significance, seeing as how we’re from Connecticut. But I wondered if they’d be too cool to include it…
My fears were unfounded, thankfully.
It is a legitimately interesting video though – it starts in the 13th century, and it takes you through Russia to Germany to immigrants to the United States, and to when the first named “hamburger” was sold in 1900 in Connecticut, and beyond:
