Javits Center’s environmentally friendly roof featured by ‘CBS This Morning’

“CBS This Morning” recently featured the Jacob Javits Convention Center’s environmentally friendly green roof.

The Javits Center, host to 150 events a year — including NY NOW and the National Stationery Show — installed seven acres of green grass on its roof, which has become a habitat for birds and other wildlife. Since adding the new roof, the Javits Center,  located in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan along the Hudson River, has drastically lowered its energy costs.
