    1. Yes, amid the man-made canyons, pockets of nature! On a practical note, I’m forever grateful to Ed Koch for starting the pooper-scooper law. Since I’m always looking up, heaven knows what I’d be stepping in otherwise! lol xoxoM

      1. We have the same here (pooper scooper) but there are those that JUST ignore it anyway.

        Someone from NYC told me when I first arrived, New Yorkers don’t look up, if you look up, you’ll look like a tourist.

        But I still do it — look up. And so do you. So I’m in good company.

    1. Yes, I do. I always think to that book (movie?) “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” and how NYC has a reputation for being a place barren of trees and nature, yet we have stuff growing even on the rooftops! And, that reminds me, there’s a rooftop farm in Brooklyn that I want to visit! 🙂

  1. I always wonder what it looks like in one of those. My friend’s a gardener who’s worked on city roof top garden. He had some on site photos — that’s the closest I’ve ever gotten. I’ll bet there are some really cool ones with pools and whatnot — Japanese gardens, especially on the east side overlooking the river.

    1. Yes! The British Empire Building and the International Building in Rockefeller Center (I think that’s what they’re called, it’s been so long since I’ve worked there that I’ve forgotten) have absolutely spectacular gardens on their roofs. I think they were featured in an episode of “White Collar” the first or second season they were on the air.

    1. Yes. I think Tom Vilsack, the Secretary of Agriculture, has been making a big push for community gardens as well. If I recall correctly, the grounds surrounding the building where the USDA is housed has raised beds growing produce that is donated to shelters. It’s a great initiative!
