Greenspotting in NYC

This weekend in New York City wasn't all fun and meetings for me. I also had my eyes peeled for cool green stuff...and I found some. Most notable were the green roofs that seem to sprouting up all over the city. The picture above was taken out my hotel window. What a gorgeous green oasis in the middle of Manhattan! And this one was directly across from the office I was in:

It was wonderful to see evidence of people utilizing what would be wasted space to make the city a little healthier and more beautiful. Have you seen any green roofs lately? Any other signs of nature in the city?

Roof garden's are so wonderful! But I also wonder how the extra water they need balances out ecologically? I must read up on it one day.
I'd love a green roof on our garage at home.
Glad you had a good trip, Willo. Xx
