Though I currently reside in the city, I was definitely born and bred a country mouse. So when I first moved to New York, it was quite a shock to me.
The tall buildings, the endless concrete, the nonstop noise — it was definitely overwhelming. And although I’ve since adapted to city-living, there are times I yearn for nothing more than a porch, a yard, and a little privacy all my own.
Sometimes you just need a quiet escape from all the hustle and bustle… That’s why this apartment feature has me totally green with envy. I had no idea this was even possible — and now that I know, I’m dying to have one too!
Conceived of and built in the early 2000s, this rooftop secret has since been coveted by many a New Yorker. Now, it has city-dwellers everywhere wondering, “What else is lurking on those mile-high Manhattan rooftops?”

High above the city streets of New York City, at the top of a towering apartment building, there sits a secret that not just anyone can behold. It takes a special view — and a few double-takes — to observe this special rooftop feature.
On top of this city building sits a little slice of country heaven: a house, complete with a porch, front yard, and stone walkway. The lucky owner of this rustic rooftop escape? David Puchkoff and Eileen Stukane, two geniuses who have taken rooftop gardening to a whole new level.
