One of the best weekends of the year, Open House New York, will be here before we know it. This Saturday and Sunday, sites all around the city?historic, residential, under construction, and more?will open their doors to the public this weekend. OHNY sites can draw crowds, but we have a giveaway that will help with that: two OHNY passports, VIP passes that allow you and a guest to jump to the front of the line at OHNY sites. (These passes are only good at sites that don't require advance reservations.) Retail value: $150.
Want to be first in line at OHNY? All you have to do is write a poem about the OHNY site you'd most like to see this year and e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Poems are due by the end of the day tomorrow, October 9. The OHNY staff has also offered us four pairs of tickets to the OHNY launch party at SuperPier this Friday evening, and those tickets will go to the contest runners-up. Note: winners must be able to pick up their passes at OHNY's weekend hub. Now go forth and rhyme!
