Open House New York seeks volunteers
Open House New York, the weekend look inside what are normally closed doors of New York City’s architectural and design fascinatia, takes place Saturday and Sunday, October 9th and 10th this year. Volunteers are needed. Volunteers would assist with the weekend’s many programs, including tours, site-specific performances and discussions. Shifts are approximately four hours long and require a training session. Volunteers will also be able to skip the line at any non-reservation only event. Sites opened for the weekend in the past have included the High Bridge Water Tower, the Atlantic Avenue Tunnel, the Grand Lodge of Masons on 23rd Street in Manhattan and a host of architects’ offices, private homes and institutions across the five boroughs, including Freshkills Park, which will participate for its fourth consecutive year.
