City Sleepover.

Monday, August 26, 2013

Artist Thomas Stevenson is the founder of Bivouac NYC, a pop-up rooftop campsite in East Williamsburg. According to John Leland of The New York Times, Stevenson built seven tents from canvas and wood, along with a picnic table and even a makeshift library. Reported one camper recently, "I went to bed with a belly full of whiskey, starlight and the sound of distant traffic. All is well on the rooftop."

Read the feature by John Leland in The New York Times, here, and see a photo slideshow - with photographs by Michael Kirby Smith - here.

Amazing! I could totally get behind that kind of camping, although I don't mind woodsy camping either.
