I think it sounds like a great idea – I’m not a ‘city person’, but would love to have the experience of sleeping outdoors (in a relatively safe, legal, and organized setting) in an urban area. I know I would be exposed to the nighttime sights and sounds that many city dwellers know and love and associate with ‘home’; I’m always excited about opportunities to further my understanding of other people’s backgrounds and/or cultures. Local sights and sounds might not be associated with nature, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are bad things, as they can create a unique sense of place.
What a cool concept!! I went directly to the website because I was sure this was going to cost a fortune… especially when they said one was set up by artist, but there’s no cost to participate!
Now granted, I’m nowhere close to NYC, but this would be so fun – even if it’s just for one night! Thanks for the article 🙂
