Nap Tour: The City That Never Sleeps
After many successful naps — and maybe one too many lobster rolls — we trekked on from Boston to the city we call home: New York. Although it’s often known as the city that never sleeps, we set out to change that.
We started the day out like any typical New Yorker would, with a black coffee and a bagel. We parked the Napmobile just outside of Madison Square Park, right in front of the Flatiron building. Also, conveniently located next to our favorite Shake Shack location. Madison Square Park is every New York lunch breaker’s dream. It’s home to Madison Square Eats, a short walk from Eataly, and houses a plethora of outdoor dining and seating options. Shortly after opening, we learned nap hour is the lunch hour. Instead of fighting the lunch-induced food coma, New Yorkers took an extra 10 minutes to work off those carbs (walking to the napmobile counts as cardio after all).
The next morning we headed over the bridge to Williamsburg. As an obligatory first stop, we brunched on fried chicken and waffles at Sweet Chick. The trendy Williamsburg coffee shops are also a must see, most even complete with a mustachioed barista. Some of our picks for a perfect pour-over: Sweatshop, Toby’s Estate, and Devocion.
Though the big city that runs on coffee will always be bustling, our Big Apple attendees did a pretty impressive job prioritizing nap time this week. We can’t wait to arrive at the next destination: D.C.
