Location: One of the most pleasant spots in Central Park is Hernshead. A rocky promontory jutting out onto the park’s lake, it is so called because it resembles a Heron’s head. It has a woodland feel with trees and seasonal flowers. As well as admiring the view, one can spot turtles from its rocks.

Nanit is the first baby-safe smart monitor for the modern family that utilizes the most advanced and secure camera ever introduced to the home. Co-founded by Dr. Assaf Glazer, Tor Ivry and Andrew Berman, Nanit was made by parents for parents who are curious about their child’s sleep habits and overall wellness. Nanit’s machine-learning technology and advanced camera sensors measure a baby’s sleep cycle and provide actionable insights that lead to better sleep for the baby – and the entire family. Nanit is the only monitor on the market that provides sleep insights, behavioral analysis, parenting tips, social sharing capabilities and nightly video summaries – all without attaching a wearable device to the baby. All of these features help to achieve Nanit’s primary mission: to help babies, parents and families sleep better.
