Oldest Roof Garden in Manhattan: the Rooftop of the Arsenal

http://www.centralpark.com/guide/attractions/arsenal.html
There are three gorgeous gardens atop the Arsenal, located just of Fifth Avenue and E. 64th Street, next to the Central Park Zoo. Kaitilin Griffin, their official gardener, has invited us to learn more about her roof gardens and visit this wonderful 160-plus-year-old building. Please bring something delicious to eat or drink to share, and remember, we're not in a private home, so we'll need cups or paper/plastic ware, whatever is appropriate for what you bring to share. This is a very special rooftop with great views of Central Park, the Central Park Zoo, Fifth Avenue and more. You're gonna love it!
See you there.
Leslie and Josh

    Thanks to Leslie & Josh for organizing, and to Kaitilin Griffin for meeting with the group. The gardens and her gentle & informative talk were inspiring and uplifting. A most refreshing breath of fresh air after a day in the office........

    Timing:
    We are scheduled from 5:30-7pm tonight. Kaitilin will start her discussion at 6pm, or may delay if people arrive later.
    She asked that we start exiting the roof around 6:45pm.

    Directions:
    The main entrance to the Arsenal is in Central park off 64th street and 5th avenue. Please take the stairs up to the main entrance of the building- and take the stairway to the 4th floor roof gardens. The entrance to the South Garden is on the right side of the 4th floor landing. I will try and post signs and also get to the event early to direct people. There will also be security guards that can direct you. If asked, you are here with a "Gardening group" to view the 4th floor gardens.

    There is another event tonight on the 3rd floor (paying) and Kaitilin asked that we not use the elevator. Also note that you will be passing by the employee offices in the Arsenal, so please keep noise to a minimum.
    you can reach me tonight at the event at: [masked]
