New York City-Manhattan
Rooftop Gardens, Tree Planting, and vegetation on rooftops and terraces are working to reduce urban heat and improve air quality.
While visiting New York City just take a look up as you walk along and you’ll likely see the trees and plants high in the sky.

“Green roofs-or vegetation—covered roof surfaces—benefit property owners in numerous ways. They can improve quality of life, thanks to noise reduction; increase property values; and beautify a property for owners and neighbors. While there are up-front installation costs, green roofs reduce energy and maintenance costs by protecting rooftops and building equipment from excessive sun exposure during warmer seasons and increase heat retention during cooler seasons.”
