On a quest to visit all of New York City’s most fabulous outdoor spaces?  Then the Rockefeller Center‘s hidden rooftop gardens are a must to add to your list – unfortunately, they may also be the most difficult to check off.  The elaborate fountain pools, stone planters, and impeccably maintained vegetation are sure to impress any and all visitors with their regal allure, but unfortunately they’re open almost exclusively to Rockefeller employees.  We’ll keep our fingers crossed for their re-opening to the public again soon, but until they do click ahead to live vicariously through some gorgeous photos!

    The concept of roof gardens is interesting, who would ever think that gardens could be placed at multiple levels on a building. It would be interested to see how this is integrated in the building to make it sustainable.
