New York is a big dang place. So big, in fact, that even Ms. Fabulosity can't get to it all. But what I can do, and DO do, is to look up. The architecture here is AMAZING! New York City is just beautiful, if you look at it the right way (by that I mean with your eyes open!). Where am I going with this? All over New York, babycakes!
openhousenewyork (OHNY) will present the 7th Annual openhousenewyork Weekend, October 10th and 11th. OHNY provides free access to sites that showcase New York City's rich architectural, design, engineering and cultural heritage. This year’s diverse selection ranges from the historic to the cutting edge.
Among the participating sites are tours of the legendary Apollo Theater, the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel—the world's oldest subway tunnel, the newly opened High Line and, rising above it, the Standard Hotel.
Perennial favorite sites and programs will once again be opening their doors to the public: Alice Austen House, Angels and Accordions at The Green-Wood Cemetery, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, Ellis Island's South Side and Ferry Building tours, the Grand Lodge of Masons, High Bridge Water Tower, Murray's Cheese, the Noguchi Museum, the Paul Rudolph Foundation/Modulightor Building, Radio City Music Hall, Queens Botanical Garden, Tom Otterness Studio, and Seven World Trade Center.
This is an event for the born and bred and transplants alike. See New York City from the inside out. Get up, get out and take a bite of our lovely, yummy Apple! See website for more details.
