Roof Report: Sneaking Up in Moscow, Fires in NYC

“A youth subculture that has taken shape around this low-slung city. Its adherents are called roofers, and they delight in gaining access to Moscow’s buildings not for criminal intent, but to scamper up to the roofs to gape at the surrounding landscape,” reports the NY Times.

The Times also reports on two roof deck fires in New York City: one caused by improper use of electrical wires, the other by smoking materials. “Recreational wooden decks could become dangerous tinder if not properly installed and maintained.” Be careful up there!
