Fall highlight Open House New York will be held this year on October 15 and 16, with private residences, hotels, unbuilt corners of parks (lookin' at you, High Line), and architects' offices opening their doors to the public. Some of those spots require reservations, and OHNY's reservation system officially opened this morning. The full list of sites for the weekend is also up, and it includes, as usual, a few Curbed obsessions. The OHNY website seems to be a little wonky this a.m. as the hordes rush the reservation line, so we'll just share a few of the highlights. (There's also a PDF list of sites for those who want to see the options without trying to reserve.) Above, Little Chitaly favorite 123 Baxter.
There don't appear to be as many developers looking to drum up foot traffic to new projects with OHNY tours this year. But there are still some real estate-related options on the list: A never-opened-to-OHNY tenement-to-condo conversion at 11 Prince Street, a tour of Mercedes House, and a look at the Enrique Norten-designed Cassa Hotel and Residences.
In the realms of architecture, urban planning, and parks, there's much more to see. Like a tour of the September 11 Memorial with David Margolis of Handel Architects, a construction tour of Four Freedoms Park, a bus tour of Fresh Kills, and a look at the High Line's third section.
