Upper West Side Terrace II

Perched high above street level, this expansive terrace enjoys inspiring views of The Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History. The reinforcement of the roof deck with a structural steel platform allowed for the installation of generously sized custom planters. Terrace plantings - including a multi-stemmed Birch tree grove, ornamental grasses and flowering perennials - frame views of the iconic and ever changing New York City institution.
