certificate of occupancy needed for movable planter and pot roof garden??

Posted by Ray Howard on August 06, 1999 at 11:38:05:

Hi: I've had a garden which occupies no more than 14% of total roof area...for twenty-nine years. the garden was even ruled in favor of by the then Conciliation and Appeals Board back in 1981,a ruling that the building owner agreed to comply with. However in Feb. 1999 this same B.O. called the Department of Buildings, complaining of tenants having a roof garden on his roof, and he, a licensed architect comes across as the aggrieved, because he doesn't have a C of O for this tenant garden. ( This is the same garden the C.A.B. said should exist as a formal roof garden, a recreational facility for tenants! )QUESTION: need there be a C of O for such a garden???Many thanks for your dedication and help.
