We would like to invite you to a very special Brooklyn Revealed event on June 21st, Wednesday.
Our Brooklyn Revealed series opens the doors to new, unique, undiscovered, and/or historic locations and offers a small group of attendees the opportunity to "see behind the curtain." For the third Brooklyn Revealed event, The Chamber will take members to the Kingsland Wildflowers Rooftop in Greenpoint.
Kingsland Wildflowers Rooftop concept was envisioned early in 2015 when Marni Majorelle, owner and founder of Alive Structures green roofing company, saw an opportunity to create habitat for plant and wildlife alongside a community space encouraging conversation and education around New York City conservation efforts. The dream was to utilize existing warehouse infrastructure in Greenpoint to cultivate native grasses and wildflowers to support birds and insects in the neighborhood. With the help of wildlife experts at NYC Audubon Society and property owner, Broadway Stages, a proposal was submitted to the Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund (GCEF) to transform the 520 Kingsland Avenue warehouse rooftop into such a green space.
