Being the most expensive city in the United States, it’s only fitting that the Big Apple is known for its plush, luxurious rooftop gardens. Organic exteriors calm our souls with surrounding greenery, vegetation, subtle annuals and daybeds with lush, delicate pillows encourage us to take a breather, read a novel, experience the optimal sunset and revitalize the spirit.
