As its name suggests, Elevated Acre is an acre-size expanse of green on a lower-Manhattan rooftop. The space’s combination of river views, a landscaped garden, and modern-design touches - like a 50-foot light sculpture- is reminiscent of the High Line, but also has the element of surprise: Who’d expect to find a meadow in the Financial District?


The Elevated Acre is also available for rental. Venue fee is $5,000; catering by Aramark starts at $150 per person. Additional $8,000 for use of tent.
