A rubber roof has been put on a house in the US city of New York by a local contractor, according to a report in the New York Times.
The rubber roof is part of a project to build a large new building in the city, the paper said.
The building was built on the site of an old factory and has been under construction for some time, the newspaper said.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has said the building will be “a beautiful, iconic landmark.”
He is expected to unveil a new $1.4 billion plan in the coming months to revive the city’s economy and its struggling economy.
In January, the mayor proposed an $8.5 billion package to revitalize the city.
It was the biggest citywide plan in years.
