If you, like us, have spent many summer days longing for the space afforded by massive suburban lawns, we have good news! Beginning next week, a pop-up backyard will bring the experience of hanging out in your parents’ backyard to a lot on the Lower East Side. The Timeshare Backyard is a private space that will be available to rent for a flate rate of $50 per hour, for up to eight hours.
Those who rent out the space can also request a variety of fun add-ons for an additional flat fee, including water balloons ($5) and a Slip ‘n Slide ($100). Tack on a grill ($50), a pack of hamburgers and hot dogs from Brooklyn’s Meat Hook ($100 for ten people), and a keg ($150), and you’ve got yourself a party. The space opens on August 11, and will be available until the end of August. (via TimeOut NY)
