Camping on a Rooftop in Manhattan…Really?
Ahh, the joys of roughing it in the great outdoors — champagne, high thread-count sheets, flat-screen television. Camping, New York City-style.
At least a couple of city locales are offering this unusual option — the chance to sleep outdoors, incredibly comfortably. It's an urban take on "glamping," where hotel comforts are taken outside, according to U.S. News & World Report.
"It's basically being able to sleep under the stars in a luxury setting," said Jeffrey Poirot, general manager at AKA Central Park, which offers an outdoor bedroom on its 1,000-square-foot terrace outside its 17th-floor penthouse.
For about $2,000 per night, the offering includes a bedroom setup — queen bed, fireplace, television — but also a telescope to look at the stars and the ingredients for that campfire favorite, s'mores.
