Open House New York is getting ready to thrown open the doors of noteworthy buildings in a single neighborhood this summer.
The wildly popular fall event, which lets the public into normally off-limits and private places around the city like the Masonic Lodge or the rooftop gardens at Rockefeller Center, will bring a unique tour experience to North Brooklyn on Saturday, June 11. Field Guide: North Brooklyn will be the first in what OHNY hopes will become an annual event that will “explore one part of the city in depth through dozens of sites.”
Once a booming industrial district, the area of Williamsburg and Greenpoint has succumb to rapid gentrification over the past two decades. Field Guide: North Brooklyn will explore the ever-changing area by stopping at numerous sites—from design studios to fabrication shops and local landmarks that make up North Brooklyn.
The event is a self-guided tour, but each site will offer its own mix of tours, talks and demonstrations to further immerse you in the neighborhood. The tour will last from 1-5pm and tickets will be $25 general admission or $15 for OHNY members and students.
Current Participating Sites:
Brooklyn Art Library
FACE Design & Fabrication
Joseph Vance Architects
Museum of Food and Drink
STREB Lab for Action Mechanics
