NEW YORK — It may come to no surprise that “the City That Never Sleeps” is exhausted.

So much so that, according to a new survey, one in 10 New Yorkers would give up a percentage of their bonuses for a workday nap.

So how does one fix this problem?

How about a mid-day nap in the middle of New York City.

That was the situation Friday, as the Casper Nap Tour made a stop in the Flatiron District to bring some much needed relief, and zzzzzz’s to the Big Apple.

On average New Yorkers log in 6 hours and 47 minutes of sleep each night, which is well below the recommended eight hours for the average healthy adult.

Studies show getting more sleep will keep you stay more focused during the day and will add years to your life, even if it is just a 10-minute nap.

Although the Casper Nap Mobile is just a pop-up station touring the country for now, the R-and-R on wheels may soon return in the near future.

The nap mobile will be in Brooklyn on Saturday at 141 N 6th St in Williamsburg from noon to 8PM.
