The Fresh Kills Cattle Ranch

Come 2007, Manhattanites looking for a bucolic estate will need to look no further than Staten Island, where the transformation of the Fresh Kills landfill into New York City's?actually, America's?largest urban park is underway. (It's two and a half times the size of Central Park.) What to do with all that space? At a public meeting in late March, Archpaper reports, "Attendees suggested everything from dog runs and boathouses to windmill farms and, oddly, a working cattle ranch for the master plan now being cobbled together for the sprawling, 2,200-acre site."
