Anyone living in New York might want to consider checking out the two health-related open houses during the annual Open House New York weekend. It’s a two day extravaganza for built environment affianados in the city, allowing for rare glimpses into often off-limits spaces around the five Boroughs. This year offers sneak peaks into:
Farber Center for Radiation Oncology: A “a freestanding, private physician, radiation, oncology practice featuring state-of-the-art treatment in a spa-like setting” designed by Jeffrey Berman Architect.
The Bowery Residents’ Committee building: A 12 story building designed by TEK architects housing “residential and outpatient programs, providing substance abuse treatment, mental health care and transitional residential services, and central administrative offices” or, perhaps more simply stated by the Architect’s Newspaper, acts as a “328- bed homeless shelter.” This one requires a $5 reservation.
