About the project
Kingsland Wildflowers is a Greenpoint community project committed to expanding natural habitat and green corridors native to the New York City landscape. The vision, conceived through partnerships between property owner, Broadway Stages, wildlife experts at New York City Audubon, Greenpoint local landscaping company, Alive Structures and our friends at Newtown Creek Alliance will provide the neighborhood with living and growing infrastructure to support native New York City wildlife.
