A 130,000-square-foot "green roof" will be installed over the domed roof of the Barclays Center in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. The vegetated roof will help boost sales for the 6,400 apartments that are to be built into the Atlantic Yards development, while muffling noise from concerts at the arena. A green roof was originally planned for the arena but was removed from the project because of the cost, according to this article.
