Old New York infrastructure meets new New York superfood.
Some 15,000 rooftop water towers dot the New York City skyline, punctuating vast stretches of glass and steel with a little old-school charm. More than a century after they were first implemented, these cedar-planked structures still pump water up from building basements.
Now you can take home these New York icons in the form of 3D-printed planters from TO+WN DESIGN. The miniature water tanks are designed for growing wheatgrass, but they’re just as great for decoration. Available in small, medium, and large designs, these plastic planters will add some Gotham grit to your windowsill.
Planters, $39-$49 each ($109 for all three) at Etsy.
