Central Park To Allow Camping For Phish’s Baker’s Dozen Residency

first_imgWith Phish‘s Baker’s Dozen run almost upon us, many phans are still figuring out where they’re going to stay for the duration of the residency. Thirteen shows in sixteen days is a tough proposition, and sixteen nights of hotel rooms in New York City is certain to put a dent in your wallet no matter what your budget. Thankfully, Mayor Bill DeBlasio has come up with a plan to house as many people as possible at Central Park’s famous Great Lawn.In a press conference focused on the new camping initiative, DeBlasio could barely contain his excitement at the influx of phans that will be hitting New York City this summer. “New Year’s with Phish is always a special time in our city, and we’re just so thrilled to have the band and their fans in our city for thirteen shows this summer,” DeBlasio said.He went on to explain that “when we heard that Phish would be in New York for so many shows this summer, we knew we were presented with a unique opportunity. With the warm weather that typically hits New York during July, we could provide some interesting housing options that would keep the shady element out of our city’s hotels while creating a special experience for the tens of thousands of traveling phans that will need a temporary home.”There is some fine print, of course. The city makes no promises about the safety of your belongings. DeBlasio explained that “…the Great Lawn will be like the campgrounds at Woodstock, never leave any of your valuables behind, always lock your tent, and whatever happens, happens. Whatever you do, take care of your shoes, am I right?”Camping spots will go on sale on April 11th, 2017 at the Central Park website. To ensure that only Phish fans make use of this special opportunity, they will be required to show their tickets at the entrance to the campgrounds. or risk being denied admission.last_img
