Kingsland Wildflowers is a Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund (GCEF) project committed to expanding natural habitat and green corridors for bird and wildlife populations. The vision, conceived through partnerships with local businesses, community voices and wildlife experts, will provide Greenpoint with living and growing infrastructure to support native New York City wildlife and educational programming focused on sustainable conservation practices and wildlife protection. Kingsland Wildflowers sits atop an active movie studio owned and operated by Broadway Stages, in the most sci-fi and industrial section of North Brooklyn alongside Newtown Creek. Our community partners include Newtown Creek Alliance and NYC Audubon. We are an educational and science-focused green roof fostering ecology, sustainability and community.

Access Notes: No pets are allowed on the green roof as it is a bird habitat. Please dress for the weather.
