PARK HERE: Free NYC Indoor Pop Up Park @Mulberry Street

 Welcome to the sunny and 73-degree world of Park Here, an indoor alternative to Central Park in January & February, where you’ll relax on the grass during the day, and dine with a movie night on the lawn. It’s open and free now. Let’s take a walk in the park and meet the owner/curator behind the Openhouse’s 5,000 sq ft Park Here, where the grass is fake but the warmth and people’s response is real. The trees are plastic foliage stapled to wooden trunks. The sunlight emanates from light boxes designed to treat seasonal affective disorder. The birds chirp through a sound system.  In addition, there is yoga sessions daily along with movie and dinner parties at night. The park occupies the Openhouse Gallery through the end of January (maybe longer) and is open to the public every day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visit their site http://www.openhousegallery.org/  Look out for five-course picnic baskets by the likes of Daniel BouludThe Little Owl, The Fat Radish and Nobu. Also, fireworks. Read more: http://www.urbandaddy.com/nyc/leisure/12319/Park_Here_An_Indoor_Park_in_the_Dead_of_Winter_New_York_City_NYC_Destination#ixzz1BPbzRR8M
