Well, it's a "lawn" of prickly Astroturf, but nature is a relative concept south of 59th Street, anyway. The Pod, a Japanese-style efficiency hotel of stacked bunks and condensed rooms, is a fine spendthrift lodging option, but its real boon is the unrestricted roof deck, free for both guests and locals. There, you'll find the wide swath of 'Turf, a few benches, and nothing else besides a spectacular Midtown view; go at night for panoramic lights, and be sure to BYOB. 230 East 51st Street,
