USD 2017: Living Rooftop (Staten Island)
NATURE AND PURPOSE OF SERVICE SITE:
The Living Roof, originally installed by the Borough Presidents office of Staten Island in 2004, sits atop a water filtration building located at the Department of Transportation’s Staten Island Ferry Terminal in Saint George, Staten Island. This building was one of New York City’s first rooftops to utilize the emerging green roof technologies, being explored as an innovative building solution for new and existing urban environments. This waterfront location bestowed the ideal environment for the experimentation and study of what green roofs can provide for a building. During this time New York City was initiating movements towards addressing the cities need for stormwater mitigation, as well as promoting ways to better develop the envelope of the built environment.
USD volunteers will assist with the community garden to donate produce to local food pantries.
