    Thank you for the support for the Riverpark Farm at Alexandria Center!

    Here is some information about New York City's most urban farm:

    The 15,000-square-foot Riverpark Farm supplies fresh, local produce to the adjacent Riverpark restaurant each day. Riverpark is located at 450 East 29th Street in Manhattan, along FDR Drive and the East River.

    The Farm, which is entirely portable (the plants are all inside milk crates), is located on a stalled construction site, making productive use of what would otherwise be a vacant space. Once construction resumes, the milk crates will be relocated nearby.

    To learn more about the Farm, visit www.riverparkfarm.com.
