Indoor Pop-Up Park at Openhouse Gallery

Openhouse Gallery, in New York City, has this fantastic Indoor Pop-Up Park down in NoLita. Openhouse Gallery house exhibitions, installations, and even pop-up retails. This pop-up park installation is called Park Here. They have everything from grass (artificial), to trees, to a pond! This space has light boxes to give the effect of sunlight and summer warmth. These light boxes help relieve any symptoms of SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) that you might be feeling. They even have local food venues set up so you can have a snack while enjoying the atmosphere. Thanks to Urban Daddy this venue is also hosting movie and a dinner nights, but at an expensive price. But for free you can enjoy some yoga in the park. Sadly, this park is only open till January 30th. If you're in New York anytime before then or if you live in the city I recommend stopping by: 201 Mulberry Street.

The boyfriend and I had a chance to stop on by yesterday. To our surprise so many people were taken it in. A lot of people even borough picnic blankets and food from outside. It is defientally like going to Central Park and sitting out in the Great Lawn in the summer. Trying to find a prime sitting place was hard even if it was 4:30 in the afternoon. We ended up finding a spot amongst the leaves. To be completely honest I thought this whole idea was swell. It is one great way to get over your winter blues. We didn't really plan ahead since we just wanted to stop by before meeting my family for dinner but we enjoyed ourselves by playing scrabble via the iPhone and sitting and relaxing.
