Did you know that the Javits Center has a 6.75 acre green roof, hiding atop the building? On this members-only Untapped Cities Insiders tour, get a behind the scenes look at the Javits Center, go on the green roof (the second largest of its kind in the United States), meet in house staff and learn how management balances sustainability initiatives while maintaining a $2 billion economic impact operation. And for the first time this year, the Javits Center will be expanding tours to include its three bee hives – which produced more than 250 ounces of honey last year during their first harvest. The honey was used to create a new salad dressing offered with a salad at the convention center. One special guest who correctly answers a trivia question on the tour will receive a jar of Jacob’s Honey, the Javits Center’s honey!
