NYC - The Official Guide



Funded by the rapper's G-Unity Foundation and administered by the New York Restoration Project (NYRP), the Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson Community Garden in Jamaica, Queens, boasts a variety of fruit trees, including peach, apple, plum, cherry and nectarine, which, gardeners say, does surprisingly well in the Northeastern climate. Some of the 20 beds in the renovated garden are raised a few feet off the ground, making it easier for both senior citizens and young children to garden. Seemingly decorative modernist sculptures, painted bright blue and standing 15 feet high, turn out to be functional funnels, part of a catchment system that feeds rainwater into an underground tank.
