Casa Cara features a second floor terrace garden tended by Elke of Brooklyn Heights:
Casa Cara: A true gardener like Elke, whose outdoor space is a 15′x25′ terrace behind her second-floor apartment in Brooklyn Heights, doesn’t let a few obstacles stop her.
No car? No worries. She does her plant-shopping on foot at the Borough Hall Greenmarket and local stores like GRDN on Hoyt Street, takes the bus to Gowanus Nursery in Red Hook, and relies on Bruno’s Housewares on Court Street to deliver clay pots (never plastic!), soil, and other heavy supplies. (The cast iron urns came from Restoration Hardware.)
