Visit to Eagle Street Rooftop Farm in Greenpoint, BK

Learning about the history of the farm - one of many great things to do in Brooklyn.

Drying peppers inside.

It was a chilly autumn day on the roof!


We shared our trip with Mini-RAD.

Being very careful not to disturb the rows of green.

These chicks have the best view in BK.

Teepee Building in Prospect Park

Picking up a locally-sourced lunch for the picnic.

Hunting and gathering.

Completed teepee!

Leaf identification.  This leaf is from a tulip tree.

An osage orange....tasty.

Ranger Tom in action... 

Just feeling some Manhattan schist.
