Earlier this month we participated in OpenHouse NY which was really great. So many people showed up to take tours of our block and to learn about how the East 4th Street Cultural District (and FAB) came to be. We appreciated being a part of the weekend so much that we started checking out their blog. Now we just can't get enough!
openhousenewyork is devoted to the architecture and design of New York City, and works hard to enhance knowledge and appreciation for the buildings surrounding us, old and new. They also promote the education of engineering, design, planning, and preservation to create a discussion about the place that we live in.
What's so great about OHNY's blog is how it makes design accessible, in little blog bits. They'll talk about specific buildings, post photos of some great hidden places to check out, and, most recently, discuss the benefits of plastic wine glasses. Essentially, OHNY is a great way to stay in touch with the urban design and architecture changes happening in the City, and we can't get enough!
