   Largest Portable Hammock 
- world record set by Hansy Better Barraza

 BOSTON, MA, USA -- Hansy Better Barraza, 34, a Roslindale architect and professor at Rhode Island School of Design, designed a 33-foot-long and about 264 square feet hammock , installed in the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, which sets
the world record for the Largest Portable Hammock, after she won a grant from The Awesome Foundation, which donates $1,000 to an interesting project each month.

   With the help of donations and volunteers, the World's
Largest Portable Hammock came together: 4,278 feet of rope made from recycled bottles woven over curved steel pipes has been installed at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Oliver Street in the new Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy of downtown Boston.

   Barraza has asked Guinness World Records to declare the hammock, which is about 264 square feet (about the size of a large parking space), the biggest portable hammock.

   The Largest Portable Hammock in The World is open noon to 8 p.m. daily (volunteers tie it up at night) until Barraza’s permits end on Sept. 4. She said she will then offer it as a public gift to the city.

   The conservancy that manages the narrow 1.3-mile park said yesterday it is considering keeping the hammock. The city has looked for ways to improve the Greenway, such as recently adding free Wi-Fi and six new food stands, amid criticism that it lacks vitality.

   The Awesome Foundation started in Boston, but has grown to include chapters in Providence, New York City, San Francisco and London. It awards $1,000 grants every month for crazy brilliant ideas. If you're interested in starting a chapter in your city, check this out.
