The New Nu Hotel Offers a Room With a Hammock and a (Serial) Killer View
Imagine yourself chillin' in your hammock this summer, breathing in the fresh air and checking out the great views around you.
Then imagine that hammock is indoors, and those great views happen to be of the jail. Also? You're in Brooklyn.
Sounds appealing, right?
We know, we know: not so much. But despite the strikes against it, we think Brooklyn's upcoming Nu Hotel sounds kind of cool and can't wait to check it out when it opens, er, "this summer."
Curbed clued us into the news of the 93-room property, and reports that some of the rooms even have bunk beds. Hmmm.
While it's still pretty bare, the website has a bit more info on the concept:
Nu Hotel is a lifestyle hotel in the heart of downtown Brooklyn that is designed with physical comfort in mind - like wearing your favorite t-shirt with a beloved pair of jeans.
...And don't forget those picturesque views of the Brooklyn Detention Center.
Talk about a killer view. Ha!
