Overlooking the New York Harbor, David and Henrie Whitcomb’s rooftop garden is a 2,500-square-foot oasis. The garden features hundreds of plants and a 15-foot vertical garden and water wall. The vertical garden and water wall was built to cover up a view-blocking brick wall that served as part of the building’s chimney, which lies directly outside the master bedroom. Its paneled face is a mix of over 600 plants and three water panels. Delta Fountains manufactured and supplied the equipment for the water panels in the wall.
