    Very lovely!!! This rooftop is a dream come true - that's exactly what I would want!! I would never have to go to Central Park to find somewhere nice to sit outside Your veggie garden is awesome too - you must get quite a bunch of veggies come harvest time!! Thanks so much for taking all these pictures!

    I can't believe how much space you have up there! It must be wonderful to spend evenings up there on your roof! I'd bet that you have lots of people willing to share it with you! Such a great space!

    OMG!! I am extremely impressed. You sure do have a lot of space up there. I bet you even have room on your roof for me to set up a little tent to live in.
