Hello Group. The call for roofdecks produced some great results and we now have a meetup scheduled to see a very characteristic roofdeck and garden in Greenwich Village, near the water. We are scheduling the meetup at a bar/restaurant in the area, less than a block from the deck, and if you reserve a space, I'll let you know the address individually by email. As always, carry my phone number[masked] 7821. The view from this deck is fascinating architecturally;garden is pretty and varied. We are capping the meetup at 20 people at the owners' preference. Please reserve. There will be an automatic waiting list. If you do reserve a spot, please show up or remove your name off early so that I can open it up to other people. The mix of plants are annual, perennial and air-planted in some cases, and the owners have done a great deal of work with old bricks, thick wood and hardware to make this deck a real pleasure. In one word, charming, as the Village should be, with a little unique funky design work that creates a wonderful space. (Please note: it's not their deck in the photo on our Meetup page, that's mine and my wife's roof). Weather: Keep my phone number and check back to our site at Meetup.com for announcements of cancellation if the weather happens to be looking real bad on the afternoon of the 16th. In case of cancellation, we will almost certainly re-arrange for a visit to this great deck a week later. In the meantime, hope to see some of you on the 16th and if things are going well, we may retire to Automatic Slims for some refreshments afterwards at 8:30. Finally, if you can't make it to this one, we'll be scheduling other roof visits in the coming weeks. Thanks to everyone who has volunteered to share their piece of sky and green with others.
