A Farm Grows in the Battery @ NYTimes.com

This could give the phrase “down on the farm” new meaning. The first farm in 386 years is taking shape at the Battery. Its creators say it is the first urban farm there. Of course it is: Who had urban farms in the 17th century? That may be why the farm’s planners also describe it as the first serious planting at the Battery since the early Dutch settlers established their gardens a short walk from the end of Manhattan island. “Island Manhattes,” the Dutch called it in 1626 when they bought it from the Indians.
