flatiron_1New Yorkers tempted to guffaw at the concept of ‘peace and quiet, on demand’ may want to give Breather a whirl. The year-old company has stolen a page familiar to cheap motel owners by renting rooms by the hour—a concept that will, no doubt, be lost on anyone other than urbanites, who long ago traded in peace and quiet for (one assumes) other valuable riches.

Breather, the brainchild of Canadian and best-selling author Julien Smith, taps into the digital revolution—or, perhaps, more accurately, the smart phone revolution—by turning unused spaces within a city into stylishly appointed modernist dens that exude Zen-like calm and offer a welcoming respite to anyone with a smart phone, in search of a personal or professional rendezvous spot, or just in need of a long nap.

Rooms can be rented for as short a span as 30 minutes, and as long as a full day, and can be booked on the run via the Breather app, which scouts out the nearest available location. New York City, not surprisingly, is on tap to be Breather’s most robust market, with more than a dozen rooms ready and waiting throughout Manhattan’s most desirable neighborhoods. Brooklyn, we sense, is not far behind.
