What's On The Rooftops of New York City

This is a personally embarrassing question for me as I was born and raised in New York City. :)

Setting: Modern times, 2010
Location: Chelsea, New York City

Scenario: I have 2 characters running across the rooftops of two factory type buildings in a typical chase scene. My dilemma is I don't know the exact names of what's on top and I can't keep using the terms vents, ducts, water towers forever.

Can anyone help me with identify what is typically on a NYC rooftop?

Search terms:

GOOGLED: new york city buildings, nyc buildings, new york city structures, nyc structures, nyc rooftops, industrial roof tops, water towers, chelsea structures

WIKI: water towers, architecture in new york city, tenements, new york city neighborhoods

ALSO LOOKED AT: EMPORIS BUILDING REGISTRY http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/ci/bu/ob/li/?id=101028&bt=22&ht=2&sro=1

Thank you!
