We all dream of beach vacations come summer, but for us city folks the hassle seems to outweigh the actual relaxation far too often. Between the endless traffic and time spent en route, most weekends at the beach end up involving more stress than fun. So why not just stay in the city?
The genius folks over at The James New York seem to have thought this same thing and are now offering the perfect weekend package for any tourist or urban dweller looking to get away. Starting at just $379, guests can enjoy a night at the hotel and a poolside package at Jimmy, their rooftop destination, that includes two cocktails, a pair of Havianas Flip-Flops, Coola organic sunscreen and access to the hotel’s library of waterproof e-readers. Plus unlimited fresh fruit and nice clean towels. All without battling East End traffic!
Or you know you can drop a couple hundred on travel and spend hours in your car to go overpay for drinks and a burger in the Hamptons. It’s your call of course, but we can tell you where you will find us this summer — 18 stories above the Manhattan traffic, poolside.
