Roof Deck Rules

(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 deck is open to all shareholders and residents at all times.

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
  • walking on the tarred area or fire escape
  • running
  • pets
  • ball playing
  • unsupervised children under age 14
  • use of the south entrance (10th Street side)
  • sitting on the parapet wall
  • cooking
  • throwing anything off the roof
  • littering
  • playing a radio or TV or any other sound device operation without headphones
  • candles or objects with flames

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. Shareholders and tenants are responsible for the behavior of their nonresident guests.

Guests may be invited to use the roof as long as the resident or shareholder 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 resident owns more than one non-joined apartment, the maximum number of guests per apartment 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.

When someone wants to have a roof party with over six guests per apartment, permission must be granted in advance by the Board. To make the procedure more equitable, the following guidelines were adopted:

a. Regular roof rules must be observed.

b. Sunday through Thursday, the party must end by 9:30 PM.

c. Friday and Saturday, the party must end by 10:00 PM.

d. Anyone planning to hold a roof party with over 6 (six) guests including residents must be in compliance with all rules of the co-op.

e. The board must be contacted at least three weeks in advance in writing, including all details.

f. Notification will be posted on the bulletin board by the host of the party immediately after the board grants permission.

g. A deposit of $500 is required.

h. No roof noise may disturb the sixth floor residents.

i. Non resident guests limited to 20 people (with an admission list furnished in advance).

j. No one party/group may use all of the large, eating tables; at least one table must be available for residents who are not partaking in the party/group/event.

k. Three hour limit to parties.

l. A member of the staff must be present during the party; cost to be billed to the apartment hosting the party. The staff member will make sure all roof rules are followed and that the person throwing the party removes any trash from the roof garden.

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