Legend has it that on hot summer nights before air conditioning, DC residents living near Meridian Hill Park used to sleep in the park to escape the stifling indoor heat. With its cascading fountains and lush landscaping, Meridian Hill is a beautiful place to relax in, walk dogs or listen to the Sunday drumming sessions, but we wouldn't feel safe sleeping there now. Friends in Adam's Morgan sleep on their small balcony on nice nights. Would you sleep outside in a city? Survey below the jump...
