45 Main Street & a Private Residence

These green roofs are mostly gardens for people to enjoy.  They also have the environmental impact of improving the insulation of these buildings and they capture rain water, mitigating combined sewer overflow (CSO).

The private residence was designed by Inger Yancey of Brooklyn GreenroofTwo Trees Management Co was very kind to give me access to their rooftop at 45 Main Street in Dumbo.

There are many green rooftop places to retreat into the American pastoral ideal in Brooklyn, but many are on private residential buildings and are difficult (if not impossible) to see.
