Add to Calendar 27-04-2014 27-04-2014 15 Plant A Green City The city's new train stations and bus depots are greener than ever. Many of them generate and use energy more efficiently with solar panels and green roofs, and some even collect and use rainwater. We'll talk about what it means to be "green" and look at examples of MTA buildings with green technology. Then design an eco-friendly city with us and take home your own green building, complete with a planted green roof. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=159041 NY Transit Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
