Here’s a sneak peek at the more than 250 sites that have made it onto 2016’s highly anticipated Open House New York Weekend (OHNY), a two-day festival where usually off limits buildings across the city’s five boroughs open their doors to the public for tours, talks, and exploration. Now in its 14th year, OHNY has brought back a number of beloved locales to their roster, including the NY State Pavilion, the Brooklyn Army Terminal, City Hall and Google; they’ve also rounded up a number of brand-new spaces like the Metropolitan Opera House and the West Village’s Westbeth Artists House. The full list won’t be released for another few weeks, but we’ve got some of the highlights ahead.
