Park Here: New York's indoor park

Winter blues got you down? New York's Openhouse Gallery recently brought a taste of spring to locals by creating its first "indoor pop up park." With artificial lawns, real trees, park benches, forest murals, SAD light boxes, and even a see-saw, the indoor park offered a temporary reprieve from snow-covered streets and bare tree branches. 

Of course, we advocate for outdoor play rain or shine (or snow), but in the middle of a bleak winter this green, sun-dappled oasis seems hard to resist. It's time to go inside and play!
