- The Private Roof that Produces the Manhattan's Only Vintage
My dear and very unique friend, Latif Jiji, is hosting us in his home and on his singular rooftop where grapes grow that he makes into wine. It's like nothing I've seen before, and I've seen hundreds of NYC rooftops. This link to an article about this roof with another link to a YouTube will get you all the advanced info you'll need - https://untappedcities.com/2018/03/20/daily-what-manhattans-only-vineyard-is-on-an-upper-east-side-rooftop/ Latif will show us where the vine starts in his garden, and how it grows up his house and across the rooftop. He'll take us into his basement where last year's crop is turning into this year's vintage. We will conclude with a taste of Chateau Latif and a chance to ask questions of this delightful an charming man. Be warned: There are lots of steps in his 19th Century townhouse, and many of them are skinny and not easily navigable, especially the spiral staircase that leads up to the roof. Because of the unique character of this event, Latif has requested that we limit it to 10 guests. If you RSVP that you are coming but can't make it, please let me know so I can let someone from the wait list attend in your place.
- Rooftop Hydroponic Farm Tour (and Hangout)
I have a new FAVORITE semi-public rooftop, and I'd love to share it with you! The Denizen Bushwick has a huge rooftop with a barbecue area, a hammock grove, mini golf, a great City view, and a ROOFTOP HYDROPONIC FARM! We are invited to tour the farm and hang out on this amazing rooftop on Saturday, June 8. So you know, 100% of the fee to attend goes to the excellent charity sponsored by the rooftop farmer. She'll tell you more about it at the event. Like always, please bring a beverage and/or a snack for all to share. To get there, take the M train to Myrtle Ave and then walk for about 8 minutes. Or ride your bike over, like me! However you get there, this rooftop is completely worth it!
- Rooftop Garden Gander BIKERIDE with the 5 Boro Bike Club
New York Public Library For the Performing Arts$5.00
Join author Leslie Adatto of "111 Rooftops in New York That You Must Not Miss" on a Sunday afternoon 13 mile bike ride to visit some great rooftop gardens, and hear the stories behind them. We will start with several interesting rooftops in and around Lincoln Center, then head down the Hudson River Greenway to see several roof terraces around the lower perimeter of Manhattan. The ride continues up the East River Greenway, ending at 3 Mitchell Place in front of the landmark Beekman Hotel. We will be locking the bikes several times to go up on rooftops. There will not be a lunch stop on this ride - eat before you come - but afterward you are welcome to join the leader and author at the Ophelia Lounge - the rooftop greenhouse cocktail lounge at the Beekman Hotel. https://opheliany.com/press/ Helmets are mandatory, as is a 2 minute bike safety check before we begin. If you want to check out Ophelia at the end of the ride, please wear something appropriate for a casual but swanky rooftop bar. The ride will end around 5:00pm at 3 Mitchell Place (49th & 1st Avenue). Participants can take the E or M subway at Lexington Ave-53 Street station. Bring: lock, water, $$ for drinks at the Ophelia, if desired after the ride ends.
