My NY boosterism is in full effect. I’ve culled the OHNY lists to recommend my favorite to all of you who I think will enjoy seeing NY from a different next weekend as part of Open House NY. To be honest, there seems like less free access to unerground tunnel, secret space than I remember in the past, but there’s still TONS to do. So …
See all there is to do here as a PDF.
And sign up here or view the events in non-PDF here.
I want to do so many. Join me! I will be deciding and signing up this afternoon so let me know if you have favorites and we can coordinate.
My top pick (because I’m a public works/infrastructure dork) The Newtown Creek Giant Egg Tour. You know the plant on the skyline. Now go inside it.
This Architecture building workshop looks fun for all ages.
I also really like this one, but it is a hike, literally. Five mile walk along old Croton Aqueduct.
Public art bike tour could be fun. (A couple of you already doing this, so that’s a plus)
Watching glass blowing at Brooklyn Glass (Fiery drama!)
This one is easy, but what the hell is the Salmagundi Club (plush and swank)
NY Public Library tour (Fancy interior architecture explained)
Blacksmith demonstrations — not that exciting, but if we are nearby worth stopping by I think.
Some of you might want to do this one for convenience, Upper West Side stories walking tour.
Ones I like that might be full, can’t tell.
Secrets of the street grid revealed on a bike tour. (Would be my fav I think but looks full, have to check)
Contemporary Architecture tour.
So much literary and music history the Ghosts of Greenwich Village Scavenger Hunt would be fun.
Seeing how wooden boats are made.
