Can we just take a deep breath and enjoy this moment? We are always moving on to the next thing, we believe so strongly that we are doing good for the environment and we can’t do enough, but just for this moment, can we please say Thank You—to the universe, to Mayor Bloomberg, to the people of Brooklyn who recognize the importance of LEED certification, to all of you who care, and to those wonderful people at Roofscapes.

It’s the Bushwick Inlet Park building. First Deputy Major Patricia E. Harris describes it this way (in I.D.) “The structure will function as the Parks Department’s district headquarters, a community space, and a comfort station for the park. But what I love most about the innovative design is the sloped green roof, which will be fully accessible to the public and will itself be a park.”

For us, it was an eye-opener: we want to do lots of projects like this. The impact is enormous.

But for now, we’re just going to bask in this lovely feeling. They got it.
