Open House New York Weekend is back for its 16th year from Friday, October 12th through Sunday the 13th, with an impressive roster of tours, events, and access to typically off-limits sites. Yesterday, reservations went live for the 123 reservation-only sites, but there are also close to 150 open-access sites, including the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the Dime Savings Bank of Brooklyn, and several architecture offices. And while these open-access sites don’t require reservations, the lines can build up. Which is why 6sqft has teamed up with Untapped Cities and fellow partner Brooklyn Based for a giveaway of two OHNY Weekend Passports, a VIP pin that lets you and a guest have front-of-the-line admittance!
