Looking to relax on your lunch break in Boston? Wouldn't it be nice if you could just plop down on a hammock for a nap?

Thanks to the Awesome Foundation, you can.

Last week we featured an interview with Hansy Better, an architect and professor at Rhode Island School of Design who was building a huge, public hammock on the Rose Kennedy Greenway.  Since then, the hammock has been completed, in part with funds from the Awesome Foundation.  We traveled to the Greenway for a look at who needs a relaxing respite amidst the hustle and bustle of the city.
