Sometime's you need to get away, but without a car in the city, transportation can be an obstacle. That's why I am fond of the "in the city but not" vacation. Last summer many a fun night was spent at Boatel in the Rockaways and this summer a new option opened called "Playland". A new motel with 9 rooms available for rent Thursday-Sunday, Playland has rooms designed by local artists, a full size pool and loads of parties happening every night they are open. Robin Scott and Jamie Wiseman of Williamsburg club Output and Diagio Galazio and Eduardo Suarez of El Almacen and Rosarito’s Fish Shack are the owners of the project. The motel also has a restaurant on the premises serving killer seafood and bar munchies.You can make reservations here and can get to Playland by Rockabus or the A train.
