Timeshare Backyard in Lower East Side available for rent

Fire up the grill!

Craving a little green space? Wish you could host a BBQ, but your rickety fire escape just won’t cut it?

New Yorkers can take refuge in a lush backyard available for rent on the Lower East Side for the second summer in a row. The Timeshare Backyard, on Ludlow Street between Orchard and Rivington, is available to rent through for $100 per hour with a minimum rental of two hours for Saturdays and Sundays, though weekday rates are available, too. The space is owned by Misrahi Reality and rented by the Participation Agency, a marketing company.

The outdoor space can hold up to 30 people, and comes equipped for your enjoyment with a BBQ grill, hammocks, lounge chairs, squirt guns, hoola hoops, sun umbrellas, picnic benches and “trashy mags.” There is also a restroom on-site (score!).

“It was a huge hit,” Participation Agency co-owner Jessica Resler told Metro. “We thought originally when we first rented it out, maybe 100 people would be interested, but we actually sold out the space.”

Once again available this summer, Timeshare Backyard is popular among groups of friends hosting picnics or summer parties. Though no one has yet rented the space for a wedding, it has been the site of one very New York proposal.

“Someone proposed to their girlfriend in the space,” Resler said. “He wrote ‘Will You Marry Me?’ on the wall in paint and it’s still there.”

Timeshare Backyard is available for rent beginning July 14, but several slots are already reserved. You can purchase your timeshare directly on the Participation Agency’s website.

Summer in the city just got a little sweeter. Take that, Hamptons!
