Need to Knows
The project happens during late spring and early fall for a week each time. booking generally happens 10 days beforehand.
it is camping aka roughing it,
in a city, on a roof
here is what i think you need to know. if i haven't covered a topic or you have a specific question, email me thank you and look forward to seeing you!
there are 6 tents. they're fun and awesome to sleep in. they're big…for a tent.
most people can fully stand up in the front end. they are canvas and the flooring is 1-inch wool felt. the canvas is waterproof and the felt feels like sleeping on packed sand.
each tent fits and sleeps 2 adults very comfortably with room for a 3 if you want to be extra cozy.
new friends, a view, a canteen with: a kitchen area, a large reclaimed wood communal table, library and morning coffee.
Yes a real toilet too (within the building)
what's not available
internet, fire, electricity, a shower (you can live one day without those, can't you?)
what to bring
I ask each camper to bring at least one food item to be used in the communal dinner: a protein, a starch, vegetables (in a reasonable quantity) we can discus via email. be creative and share.
sleeping bag, blankets, pillows. whatever is comfortable for you to sleep in and on.
what not to bring
pets (unless they are necessary for assistance), electronic devices (e.g. laptops, cellphones, cameras, etc), friends (unless they are campers too)
you are on a roof.
be very mindful of the edge.
similar to the other great outdoors, this wilderness has an assortment of opinionated neighbors (new yorkers). please be respectful and try to blend in with your surroundings.
there is no cost to participate.
if there is something I haven't covered, just ask send an email
