Before preciousness…

This past week there was an article in the New York Times about the rooftop gardeners who were up there back when rents were in the hundreds not thousands of dollars in Manhattan.  That would be the 1970’s. There was not an inherent self righteousness that can happen to the best of us today in growing some edibles or greenery.  It was just gardening.   One such cultivator, an actress was cast in “Liquid Sky” a collegiate favorite film of mine.  Check out the slide show of the gardens, and the trailer for a now dated film.
