Brooklyn Local Customs: 10 reviews and 9 photos
Even if you live in a highrise in Brooklyn, there's a good chance you could have your own garden. There are a few sites around the city that are set aside for people to keep a garden. It's a very popular urban concept and I think it's a great one. The way the plots work at Gateway National Recreation Area is through a lottery system. The community is pretty tight knit and the gardens are respected (not vandalized). People go out even on the coldest days in the early spring and fall to maintain their plots and the area is beautiful and well managed. I've lived in cities and definitely miss having a yard--it's nice there's an alternative:)
