OHNY - 2004

POST #    774

Van Gogh's Starry Night, at the Terrapin Gallery in October, 2003.

I just got an email from openhousenewyork, which will have it's 2nd annual weekend this year, on October 9th and 10th. They reported that over 45,000 people participated in the events last year. This year, they plan to "include an even more diverse array of sites of architecture and design interest in neighborhoods throughout the city."

I went to a few places last year and it was a lot of fun, but quite tiring. Trekking all over NYC isn't easy (and I didn't really go that far!).

My OHNY experiences:
- Open House, But Apparently Not for Sale (Day 1)
- openhousenewyork, Day Two

yeah, OHNY was a fun, but a major disappointment for me because i couldn't get to see even a fraction of what i would have wanted to... they definitely need to expand the hours, and make sure the locations are open on both saturday and sunday, because even if the trains and busses weren't running less frequently on the weekends it'd still be hard to see everything.

i guess the key was to choose something that you really, really wanted to see. we almost had everything mapped out on that wack map they gave out. i think we got to see a good amount without going overboard.

ohny was great fun! I only realized this while doing the tour, but many sites on the ohny list are open to the public much more often than what was mentioned in the press before the event.
