I never saw anyone on that roof terrace, although someone must have watered the plants and swept the tiles. I used to wonder about whose it was, and why did they never seem to use it?

Striking Eight Story Townhouse in the Upper East Side, NY The building’s depth gave the design team a unique opportunity; rather than a traditional rear garden, the landscape architect created four distinct green spaces. There is a courtyard garden on the main floor; a terrace off the breakfast room, just big enough for alfresco dining; the rooftop lawn is complete with an outdoor fireplace.

This might be TOO much glass. How will a glass roof handle snow? Also I can't see a way to open this up to open air. But it has the "bring the outside in" look I'm going for.
