This 1000 sf green roof on top of a multi-unit rental residential building adjacent to New York City’s Highline (which is a green roof too) and used a pre-vegetated tray system. The High Line runs from the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street. Originally constructed in the 1930s to lift freight trains off Manhattan’s streets, the High Line is now a public park.
