Weekly Insights: Javits Center Shows Off Green Roof

New York’s Jacob Javits Center has opened its rooftop garden for public tours this summer. The nearly seven-acre green roof was completed in 2014 and has become not only an energy saver, but also a wildlife sanctuary. It’s now home to 17 bird species, 300,000 honeybees, and more.

If you live in the New York area, or will be attending a show at the Javits this summer, limited free tours are now available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Here’s the link where you can register for an available time slot. Even if you won’t be in New York this summer, there’s also a live Roof Cam you can check out anytime.
