(If you are looking for the courtyard rules, please click here.)

The Board unanimously adopted the following rules. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact any board member.

The entire finished deck is open to all lessees or sublessees from 6 A.M. until midnight each day.

The fee for use of the roof other than as stated in the rules is $2,500.00.

The following are prohibited:

  • smoking (see the full No Smoking Policy)
  • excessive noise, including but not limited to dragging tables, chairs, or other heavy items that will unreasonably disturb residents on the 6th Floor (see Rule 2, supra, for the full Noise Policy). If you wish to move a table, chair or other item, you must pick it up instead of dragging it.
  • walking on the tarred area or fire escape
  • running
  • pets
  • ball playing
  • unsupervised children under age 14

  • sitting on the parapet wall

Personal property may not be left on the deck when you leave.

There may be no parties or events (with over six guests per apartment) without Board approval in advance. Lessees and sublessees are responsible for the behavior of their nonresident guests.

Guests may be invited to use the roof as long as the lessee, sublessee and/or resident who invited them is present and the number of guests per apartment is no more than six. (If apartments have been joined together, or the lessee owns more than one non-joined apartment, the maximum number of guests still cannot exceed six.)

Violations of the rules may subject the shareholder or resident to roof fees or other actions, including restitution and/or lease termination.

Permission must be granted in advance by the Board to have a roof party with over six guests per apartment.

Unauthorized parties with more than six guests per apartment are subject to a $2,500 fine.
