You can now rent a “backyard” on the waterfront at Pier 17

The Greens offers up a lawn you can drink on with a Yeti cooler, an umbrella and lounge chairs.

Because backyards are hard to come by in NYC, The Rooftop at Pier 17 is providing mini-lawns for the summer once again with The Greens.

The popular Seaport District rooftop's 28, 14-foot-by-14-foot mini lawns are back with cabana-style lounge chairs, umbrellas, Yeti Coolers, USB ports and more that you can reserve this summer for up to eight people.

Each mini lawn is like having your own little slice of suburbia with room to stretch out without worrying about being too close to others and lawn games you can rent out at a larger gaming court like bocce ball, cornhole and giant Jenga. 

The difference? There will be a 32-foot-wide LED screen to watch sports and movies on and incredible food and drink options by R17 that you can get delivered right to your mini-lawn: slow-roasted cauliflower birra tacos; a Maine lobster roll; a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich; spicy tuna maki sushi roll; campfire s'mores; Popbar popsicles; and drinks like frozen jalapeno-watermelon margaritas.

You'll be able to order through your phone via a menu that pops up when you scan a QR code. And yes, there's free WiFi!

The Greens is open from noon to 11pm on Mondays-Wednesdays, from 11am-1am on Thursdays-Saturdays, and from 11am to 11pm on Sundays, weather permitting of course. Making a 90-minute reservation is $40, and does not include food that you order. 

Check out the Seaport Cinema's screening lineup in case you want to catch a flick from your mini-lawn, too.
