This weekend, it’s time to celebrate a little bit of New York history.
Take a bike ride over to the Navy Yards’ BLDG 92 for the “Brooklyn Navy Yard: Past, Present and Future” exhibition which delves into the rich American history of the Navy Yards and describes the transformation into the manufacturing and green business facility it is today. Make sure to take the bike tour for a more in depth look at the changes made over the years. Afterwards, hop on the Vanderbilt bike lane to visit The Shelton on Lafayette for our Open House from 3-5.
On Sunday, head to the New York Transit Museum, to find out exactly how the subways work in the “ElectriCity” exhibit and catch the “Meet Miss Subways” exhibit, “a look at New York’s most iconic and democratic beauty contest.” After brushing up on your transit history, jump on the subway or bus and head to Prospect Heights to take a look at The Dean Lofts, some of our newest rentals. Open House Hours on Sunday are 11:30-1:30.
Uptown, The Bartow-Powell Mansion Museum is giving free guided tours of the grounds to celebrate Bronx Week on Sunday. Make sure to catch “The Age of Botanical Wonders, Illustrations from Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London, 1805–1829” on display in the museum’s library. After a thorough tour, head over to the Open House at Fieldston Lofts from 1-3 for a peek of this gorgeous new development in Riverdale.
