The roof on my 8 family 4-story Pre-War Apartment in Crown Heights has been a place to garden, eat and chill for the last couple years. We used to garden in the huge, un-used backyard space but found that it’s north facing position with some big trees didn’t allow enough light to grow food ( it also was a mosquito breeding ground as well as had rabid ghosts from the dog fighting they used to do back there in the late 1980’s). So, I took the garden sky bound a couple years back. One flight up, its been a a great source of pleasure in a myriad of ways. A little green space in the concrete jungle goes a long way.
