The city is getting soft.

After a long day of local food, bike lanes and reading The Atlantic Cities, wouldn't you like to curl up in Boston? 

With City Quilts, courtesy of the folks at Haptic Lab, you can. Well, not Boston -- that quilt is sold out, for now. But you can wrap yourself in the hand-stitched street grid of San Francisco, Washington D.C., Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, New Orleans, London or Paris. 

Go ahead, sleep on the streets. Or under them.
