You can actually sleep in the city that never sleeps in summer because there’s no one here. The five boroughs that make up New York City lose their residents, especially in August when the heat seems to be reflecting off the sidewalks. I always look forward to staying put for a long stretch in summer and having an abundance of parking spaces — which I now consider a blood sport — on the street at all hours day or night.  After a spring filled with college campus visits for my rising senior, I thought a staycation would be the best move.
