This weekend you don’t need the proverbial keys to the city to gain access to elusive private residences, undeveloped park nooks, and architectural offices: Open House New York unlocks the city’s most vaulted spaces for a 48-hour architectural bonanza that some avid Curbed.com readers, real estate agents, and small apartment dwellers look forward to all year. "Some of those spots require reservations,” advises Curbed.com and offers up a "few Curbed obsessions” to add to your buildings crawl. There are "some real estate-related options on the list: A never-opened-to-OHNY tenement-to-condo conversion at 11 Prince Street, a tour of Mercedes House, and a look at the Enrique Norten-designed Cassa Hotel and Residences.” For fans of architecture, urban planning, and parks, the site recommends, "a tour of the September 11 Memorial with David Margolis of Handel Architects, a construction tour of Four Freedoms Park, a bus tour of Fresh Kills, and a look at the High Line's third section.”
