Since last year, the farm stand has been open every third weekend outside t…

Spotted lanternflies are living their best lives, scaling skyscrapers, riding the subway, and lounging at the beach in seemingly more plentiful numbers than in the last two summers combined.

This year, Mayor Eric Adams announced, a record-breaking 100,000 young New Yorke…
