I live in the junction of Fort Greene, Prospect Heights, Park Slope, Gowanas, and Downtown Brooklyn.. aka Barclay's Center. We've been watching the green roof construction for quite some time. Thus far, not very green. In fact, its been a bunch of steel, sheet metal, and heavy machinery. Great for my 2 1/2 year old son, not the best for keeping it green in Brooklyn.
This week they started to lay down the first pieces of sod on the east side of the Barclay's Center and we got a small glimpse of what to expect. Should be pretty sweet when its all said and done. I imagine the cranes will have to go, much to my son's chagrin, but it will be a grassy knoll in the sky. Gotta take what we can get in BK. #greenroofBK
