Camping in the Big Apple
As a destination for a camping trip, Brooklyn isn’t somewhere most people would think of as being ideal. But for Thomas Stevenson, the creator of Bivouac, it was. The designer regularly organises tent camping excursions to New York City rooftops that he calls Bivouac.
Stevenson organises trips for up to fourteen people who sleep two to a canvas tent. The tents are placed on the roofs of New York buildings. Even though they’re in the heart of the city and within walking distance of the subway, Bivouac guests enjoy a complete camping experience, including a campfire.
Camping on the Roof Top
Even though they’re roughing it in the city, guests enjoy one of the world’s most spectacular views. All the urban amenities are only a short stroll away and they enjoy wireless phone service.
There are some other advantages to Bivouac. Where else can you sleep in a tent and still catch a New York Yankees game or enjoy a real New York hot dog? If the campers get bored, they can even take the subway to Coney Island for a day on the boardwalk.
