At least it’s close to the airport


If you’re looking for an inexpensive, albeit inconveniently located, unique place to stay in New York City this may be the ticket. What do you think about staying at a floating, sustainable hotel made from repurposed truck parts sound? Designed by architects Matteo Pinto and Carolina Cisneros of design company ComboColab, the Truck-a-Float Hotel offers four separate sleeping pods made out of old windowed truck cabs. The unique accommodations, moored at Marina 59 by the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge , only costs between $60 and $90 per night.


The hotel’s pods where built out of roofing panels and wood with recycled pick-up truck caps. Each floating “room” has a two-person cot, a folding table, fan and mosquito netting. Bathroom facilities are nearby.


Maybe the biggest selling point for the Truck-a-Float Hotel is its proximity to JFK International Airport just across the bay.
