Throughout New York City, studies were carried out to see if green roof adoption should take root. Vegetation on the roofs of city buildings may benefit climate change and save money in the long run. The interest is rising because of the long-term ecological benefits: lower temperatures in the summer, more insulation in winter, preventing storm water run-off and more. Imagine our dense urban cities full of green roofs.
