BEST ENVIRONMENTAL OBJECTIVE LESSON FOR CHILDREN OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS
P.S. 6 Roof Garden
When we were in elementary school, we had a dinky little roof garden with a few planters and a lot of steel mesh to prevent pre-pre-teen suicide. P.S. 6, the U.E.S. Old School, alma mater for numerous celebs like J.D. "I'll Sue You" Salinger, recently broke ground on the roof garden of the future: not only will there be outdoor gardening, but also a greenhouse, solar energy panels and a pond(!). All those things help to control climate change, and some of them provide food. For most of us, though, it'll be just one more roof to covet when you fly over NYC in a plane, look out from an elevated subway track, or stand on a friend's roof (while coveting that roof as well).
