White Roofs Grace The Lower East Side

Manhattan Luxury Real Estate - Lower East Side ListingsAcross Manhattan new ideas to make the city greener are taking off, and the city’s most recent environmental project has sprouted on the Lower East Side. The LES will be getting a little greener when a block of 20 buildings' roofs are painted bright white. This single block from East Fourth Street to East Third Street, and from Second Avenue to the Bowery will finally see what it is like to have some green touches in their living quarters. The idea of white roof painting helps impact the environment in a better way, but it also makes an impact economically. In the future, these white roofs may dot more of the Manhattan skyline.
