But to do that, you have to leave the city, right? Wrong. Brooklyn Grange is an innovative urban farming initiative that turns NYC’s rooftop spaces into usable farmland. Their excellent produce is sold at farmers markets and grocery stores across the city, where buyers are pleasantly surprised to learn that their food was grown within the city limits. If Brooklyn Grange sounds appealing to you, it’s a great idea to check out one of their many workshops. Their classes will show you how to use essential oils, create your own art supplies from freshly farmed vegetables, and how to create an apartment-appropriate urban garden of your own. You can even learn the art of beekeeping if you’re not afraid of getting stung. Visit the Brooklyn Brewery: Nothing takes the edge off a brisk fall day like a tasty beer. New Yorkers are proud of their local brews, and Brooklyn Brewery stands among the best of them. There’s a good chance you’ve already sampled one of their excellent beers, but a visit to the brewery proper is always worth it. Their delightful tasting room has transformed the warehouse district of Brooklyn’s Northside into a mecca for seekers of all things bitter and hoppy. Their fall events include beer tastings, Oktoberfest celebrations, and even a weird event where you learn to code while you enjoy their beer. Develop your computer skills and drink?
