As fall begins, the Queens County Farm Museum is a fascinating place to reconnect with New York City’s agrarian past — and get inspired about local agriculture.  Dating back to 1697, this 47 acre parcel of farmland still yields yearly harvests, and free admission allows the public to tour the fields, explore the greenhouses, and feed the farm animals all year round.

Kate Levin is the commissioner of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. In this role, she directs cultural policy for New York City, supporting and strengthening the City’s cultural life through public funding for nonprofit cultural organizations throughout the five boroughs.
