BEST (only) FARM MUSEUM IN NEW YORK

Queens County Farm Museum

Not only does it host one of the city’s only county fairs
(yee…haw?), but the Queens County Farm Museum (73-50 Little Neck
Pkwy) also promotes all sorts of localisms, from drinking upstate wine
and eating upstate produce to hosting presentations on sustainable
farming and renewable energy. They’ve also been known to party down
with “pagan-inspired rituals,” like in The Wicker Man
(Christopher Lee version, because it has more singing).

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.
