Open House New York Weekend is a citywide festival that unlocks the doors of New York’s most architecturally and culturally significant buildings and highlights the people who design, build, and preserve New York.
Every year I get excited about this event, and every year I end up disappointed. The tours happen when we’re sketching together. The places that open up and become available are fascinating, but it’s never organized so that we could sketch. It’s highly structured and they keep people moving along so the greatest numbers can view these incredible buildings and homes. But, this year is different.
Is anything better during the pandemic? I’d say yes, this is better, or at least it’s better for NYC Urban Sketchers. Of the 150 venues that are open, none can be visited in person but many are conducting virtual tours where we can see the virtual photos/videos of the interiors. It’s an incredible list of locations.
The Plan Your Weekend feature at the Open House New York Weekend website is the portal to all of our activities this Saturday.
