New york’s rooftop gardens

 

Raved about book by Roberta Amon and Denise LeFrak Calicchio promises to showcase some of New Yorks finest outdoor space. Below are a few lovely examples including Japanese inspired spaces.

“Idyllic urban oases offer inspiration to anyone yearning to add nature and serenity to an outdoor living space. Rooftop Gardens showcases some of the most unique and extraordinary outdoor spaces in New York City that urban dwellers have created as retreats from the daily chaos of life. A sumptuous array of gardens ranging in style from working to exotic fills the pages, a diverse selection befitting different scales and changing seasons. From the lush produce garden of Eli’s Vinegar Factory to a glass-enclosed conservatory perched atop Park Avenue in which amaryllis, paperwhite narcissus, and cyclamen grow during the winter months, this stunning portfolio illustrates innovative and original ways to design one’s own outdoor sanctuary–be it sky-high or ground level–and is a must-have for homeowners, decorators, and landscape architects alike.” – Amazon

“The book, published by Rizzoli, promises to showcase some of the city’s most fabulous outdoor spaces.” “New York Post”
