New York City is comprised of a lot of concrete and steel, but throughout this great metropolis is a whole lot of green. On this week’s Cityscape, we’re visiting two draw-dropping green spaces – The Lotus Garden on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Brooklyn Grange. The Lotus Garden is located 20 feet above West 97th Street, on the roof of a parking garage.
