Urban Agriculture Across New York City

Mapping Agricultural Production in New York City (M.A.P. NYC) is an interactive map showcasing food production in the city. The map not only points out farm and garden locations, but also provides information on food production and distribution, technologies, labor, services to the community, and other information. M.A.P. NYC is crowdsourced, meaning that each entry is editable by growers themselves. To learn more, visit M.A.P. NYC.

Mapping Agricultural Production in New York City (M.A.P. NYC) is maintained by professors and students at New York University (NYU). The map, which compiles and visualizes crowdsourced data, is intended to facilitate a greater understanding of NYC's local food systems at large.
