It's hard to top Ian Schrager's 40 Bond penthouse when it comes to rooftop lawns, but here's a decent try from 79 East 2nd Street. The building's penthouse is now on the rental market, as EV Grieve notes, for a whopping $13,500/month. The 1,400-square-foot private rooftop has a deck and a lawn, as well as a 4-foot-deep resistance pool. Less of a selling point: the furnishings are "brand new from RESTORATION HARDWARE." At least it's not as egregious as some restoration hardware usage.
