Brooklyn Parking Lot Converted to Urban Farm
North Brooklyn Farms at Havemeyer Park
After three months of construction Havemeyer Park opened to the public this past week. The former parking lot of the historic Domino Sugar Factory, on Kent Avenue between S. 3rd and S. 4th, along the Williamsburg waterfront has now been converted into an urban farm run by North Brooklyn Farms, Brooklyn’s first (legal) mountain bike park built by Dellavalle Designs, and a reading room and 8,000 square foot lawn built by Bobby Redd for all to enjoy.
North Brooklyn Farms is an urban farm located in Havemeyer Park, the former parking lot of the Domino Sugar Factory. Our mission is to demonstrate how city-dwellers can grow their own food in under-utilized urban spaces. Come tour the farm, pick-your-own produce, enjoy a farm party or attend a supper club.
