Oh what a difference a year makes
At last year's OpenHouseNewYork weekend, eager archi-nerds hoping to get a glimpse of the High Line (but not eager enough to trespass on the CSX-owned tracks for some real up-close-and-personal as several notable photobloggers have done) had to climb the stairs of an abandoned meatpacking plant to get a legal peek. This year, the Little Community Initiative That Could is movin' you on up to "the loft gallery of the Phillips, de Pury & Co. auction house" at 450 W. 15 St. in Chelsea. There must be something about a plan to reshape the city that feels so blessedly free of controversy and promises to boost property values through the roof (ignoring that pesky "bubble" for a moment). Click and scroll down to site No. 64 under Manhattan at OHNY's site for more info on this weekend's luxe viewing op.
