5 OHNY Picks

The 2016 Open House New York (OHNY) weekend is just over a week away. The list of the 275+ participating sites for the 2016 OHNY Weekend was released on Wednesday (PDF link). Below are a handful of the sites – one per borough – that stand out to me. These don't require any reservations (those that do sell out quickly), but nevertheless be prepared for lines at these and other venues.

And for those interested in the OHNY Weekend Launch Party, it's taking place on Thursday, October 13, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, at A/D/O, a former warehouse renovated nARCHITECTS as a new design space that will open later this year. Tickets can be purchased here. Maybe I'll see you there: my new book will be one of the items being raffled off during the party.
