A Christmas Vacation Awaits You At The Flatiron Plaza With This New Public Hammock Installation

While you can't escape the December cold, you might just be able to escape some of that holiday stress. Head to the Flatiron Plaza to try out a new form of public therapy: hammocks!

In response to the plaza's annual design competition, a team from LOT architecture recently installed majestic LED-lighted arches known as "The Flatiron Sky-Line" that hold six cozy hammocks, which are free and open for exploration by everyone in the neighborhood. From 9:00am to 9:00pm, New Yorkers can nestle in for a new perspective of their daily surroundings, including the Flatiron Building, Madison Square Park, and yes, even the winter sky.

Go ahead and take a load off - if you find a way to drown out the sirens, the honking, and the barking surrounding the plaza, it's almost like a beach vacation. Almost.

Read more about the temporary installation in the full article from Gothamist, and go for a swing before they disappear after the holidays.
