In July 2015 Cheryl Walker, a World Unwrapped researcher, completed an analysis of the Five Borough Farm project in New York City. Her analysis and assessment was based on the project proposal, risks, challenges, successes, and a whole host of other factors. Using a urban policy standpoint, she concluded that:
While there are uncertainties about the outcome of the project due to its ongoing status as it is in the midst of its third and final phase, there have been noticeable successes that point to the possibility of overall success for the project.
While this assessment is not exhaustive, it is very comprehensive and assess multiple processes and possible outcomes of this urban development project.
