Dear Landlord, we the tenants write to you today with a proposition: a self-initiated improvement to our building in Downtown Brooklyn– a second home. Our loft building has always hosted a strong creative community; we’ve shared a rooftop farm for years, and now many of us hope to start families here. This second home would serve our community with a large kitchen and dining area, with a glass wall opening out onto the farm. The home will also provide suites of rooms that offer privacy, silence, and simplicity to our otherwise complex New York City lives. First Prize, City Above the City Competition.
