It's that time of year again: this weekend is Open House New York, the annual event where rarely glimpsed spaces around the city open their doors to the public. Now in its 15th year, OHNY has grown to offer year-round programming for New Yorkers to discuss and appreciate architecture and urban design, but the main event is still the weekend of open houses in unexpected places.
This year's lineup includes more than 240 sites. Of those, about 100 require advance reservations due to space and other considerations, and many of those are already booked up. Still, there is an array of interesting options, all of them free of charge.
People who'd like to beat the crowds may do well to pick from the furthest-out options in the outer boroughs. Also, for the hardcore OHNY-head, there's also the option of paying $150 for a weekend pass that allows holders to skip the general-admission lines. The cost is tax-deductible.
