City Island was the place to be this past 4th of July holiday weekend. The area was full of diners as the outdoor seating, waterfront views and extensive seafood menu options made it the ideal destination for anyone skipping the predictable backyard bbq this 4th. [News 12]

Another star has emerged in the south Bronx’s urban farming movement. Tanya Fields recently built the 4,500 sq Libertad Urban Farm in the Hunts Point section of The Bronx to address racial, social and economic justice in the borough. Still in its first growing season, the farm plans to offer fruits, veggies, whole grains, meats, cheeses, and eggs to fill the void left by poorly stocked local supermarkets. In addition to providing residents healthy food options, Fields hopes to create jobs and teach community kids sustainability through growing food. [Madamenoire]
