Open House New York Announces 300+ Sites for 2012
CurbedSeptember 26, 2012On October 6 and 7, more than 300 sites around New York City—from new hotels and private residence to in-progress parks and historic buildings—will open to the public for the annual fall highlight Open House New York. Some of the sites and events require reservations, which will open at 10 a.m. Thursday morning (that's tomorrow), and OHNY will release the full list of sites this evening. To whet your appetite, they sent over a press release detailing a few dozen of the sites. There are nine new sites this year, and, as always, there are a bunch of Curbed obsessions.
Treehugger's Graham Hill will be welcoming visitors into his foldable 420-square-foot apartment, and designer Apryl Miller is opening her fantastically whimsical Upper East Side home. Interior Design magazine curated a collection of 15 private homes of contemporary architects living in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and there are a few new residential developments on the agenda, including One Museum Mile, Via Verde in the Bronx, and Tribeca's 93 Worth Street.
Two non-residential but new, and bound to be popular, sites are the Wythe Hotel and 40/40 Club. In the realm of under-construction/renovation projects, there's a lot to see: Brooklyn Bridge Park's Pier 5, the Park Avenue Armory, the New School's University Center, Prospect Park's Lakeside development, and more.
Popular sites like the TWA Flight Center at JFK, the Brooklyn Army Terminal, the High Line Rail Yards, and 7 World Trade Center will be returning, but of course, this is all just the tip of the iceberg, so do head over to the official OHNY site.
