Don’t have any plans this weekend? If you’re in New York consider attending “Open House New York,” a once a year event that celebrates architecture and design throughout the five boroughs. Hundreds of sites normally closed to the public will open their doors and other locations will host special tours, talks, and performances. There's lots to chose from. Climb to the top of the tower at the Jefferson Market Library; visit the Little Red Lighthouse; explore the Old Stone House, built in 1699; inspect the Unger Hansen Residence, an energy-efficient townhouse; wander through the Noguchi Museum, a former photoengraving plant; and more. For a full list of events visit here.
I plan on checking out the New York Marble Cemetery, Edward Hopper’s studio, and the Morris-Jumel Mansion. Can’t wait. Have a great weekend, everyone!
