Cities were traditionally self reliant. Commodities that the general public could afford had to come from in or near the city center. And the city center actually stood as the center of trade and not a tourist hub and facade of the city itself. We need to deconstruct the acres and acres of vacant housing to create farmland in the city. Use the suburbs as micro farms too. If the owners of land don't want to commit to the project themselves, they can lease the land to others in exchange for crops. Use the deconstructed row home materials to build the infrastructure for the city agriculture. We could even create green highways throughout the city and allow livestock to roam through to maintain the fields.
