This Brooklyn Company Is Here To Make NYC Rooftops Greener

By Desirée Kaplan

Green rooftops are a hit in recent years. First becoming popular in Europe, particularly in Germany, they have gained traction throughout the world. Today, you can find green rooftops on the buildings of major companies like Facebook, YouTube, and Google. Even major landmarks such as Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building sport green roofs. 

Companies like Brooklyn Greenroof  in NYC are dedicated to making our roofs greener than ever. Company founder, Inger Yancey, created Brooklyn Greenroof and knows a thing or two about the benefits of sky high greenery. Apart from running her company, Yancey teaches Environmental Sustainability at Pratt Institute and has spoken at events such as the Southeast New York Stormwater Conference. 

With over 30 years of sustainable architecture experience under her belt, Yancey is a green roof pro who helps companies and individuals design and build the perfect green roof for their needs. But how does it work? And why would anyone want to put one on their place?
