Goodnight New York Contest

Entry Fees

Free to enter.


A two-night complimentary stay at The Frederick Hotel in Tribeca, Manhattan.


The three lucky winners of the Goodnight New York Contest will receive a two-night complimentary stay at The Frederick Hotel in Tribeca, Manhattan at a time of their choosing.

Here’s the assignment: write a bedtime story for adults. (No, we don’t mean risqué, just not a children’s story.) Your story, which may be true or made-up, should somehow relate to New York City—or as Frank Sinatra crooned, “the city that never sleeps.”

The contest will culminate in a reading at The Frederick Hotel in late winter 2018, and the three winning stories will be displayed in selected hotel rooms. (Winners don’t need to attend this reading if not convenient.)

One of New York City’s oldest hotel properties, dating back to the 1830s, The Frederick Hotel in Lower Manhattan’s trendy Tribeca enclave provides boutique accommodations with historically reverent design.

There is a limit of 500 words.
