New York City - Open House New York

Met Life, originally uploaded by Berks_Awhile.
This was the 8th year that New York City has a weekend program, called Open House New York (OHNY), allowing access to private and public buildings for architecturally and design enthusiasts.

Historically it runs on Columbus Day Weekend. This year I toured a LEED Certified apartment on 85th Street. The Lucida apartment we visited cost about $5,000,000 or about $1M per bedroom.

The Chrysler Building lobby, normally off limits, was open for the day too. Still heavily guarded, but at least tolerant to the art deco enthusiasts it attracted.
