About Open House New York Weekend
For two days each October, Open House New York Weekend unlocks the doors of New York City's most important buildings to give the public an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build, and preserve New York. From historic farmhouses built in the city's earliest days, to new buildings at the cutting edge of design and technology, hundreds of sites across all five boroughs are open to visit, with tours, talks, and other special events taking place on October 14 and 15, 2017.

About Jane's Carousel
Jane's Carousel is a classic 3-row, 48-horse carousel, with carved horses and chariots attributed to John Zalar and Frank Carretta. Created in 1922 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company and originally installed in Idora Park in Youngstown, Ohio, it was purchased by David Walentas in 1983 and restored by Jane Walentas over the course of more than twenty years. Today the Carousel shines under 1,200 brilliant lights and is installed along the East River at Brooklyn Bridge Park in an exquisite jewel box by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel.
