WATCH: One of City’s Largest Green Roofs Opens in The Bronx

RIVERDALE―The Whitehall Co-op on Henry Hudson Parkway and W 232nd Street unveiled a massive 30,000 square foot green roof designed by the same landscape designers as Manhattan’s High Line, Genie Masucci.

Costing $6.5 million, the improvement includes a sundeck, children’s playground, walking paths, native trees, grass, shrubs, a fire pit, and gazebos and is being touted by co-op as a, “first-of-its-kind” amenity in The Bronx and one of the largest in New York City.

The Whitehall was built in 1970 and at 23 stories houses over 400 apartments and this luxury development was even the home of Ed Sullivan as well as accomplished actress Yvonne De Carlo (aka Lily Munster of ‘The Munsters’).
