Hello,

Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com

My name is Tammi Joyner

I am your Host for the Show

Today we are live from The Ford Foundation Atrium!

location: 320 E 43rd St – Take any of the trains in Grand Central Station

www.fordfoundation.org

The building is a part of the public spaces open to the public!

Inside the building, a lush tropical garden on the ground level forms the focal point of an enormous and sunlit 10-story glass atrium. Amazingly, keeping this garden watered doesn’t deplete city utilities; the building’s roof captures rainwater, and during dry periods, the garden is kept healthy with a stored water supply.

Glancing up towards the roof, the greenery continues. Ferns and vines hang down from girders above, and small trees are visible from the top floors. The garden’s serene aura is aided by the fragrance of gardenias, and the sound of running water supplying a pool hidden amid the trees. The Ford Foundation was completed in 1967 and designated a national landmark in 1997.

 It’s open to the public on weekdays from 10 AM to 4 PM.
