With co-director Greg Hunt, Chan Marshall creates a wonderful video portrait of Manhattan

A rooftop farm thrives just beyond the Manhattan skyline

A few years ago, a sprawling urban farm was started in one of the most improbable places of all: Queens, NY. On top of the mammoth Standard Motor Products Building, ground broke and an acre was cultivated using over a million pounds of soil to supply local restaurants, shops and foodies with fresh, organic produce.  As the last days of the summer season loomed, I ventured out to Brooklyn......read more
