Tour 17 of New York’s Open Spaces and Landscapes with ASLA-NY

Open House New York and the New York Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA-NY) are partnering to present New Landscapes New York, tours of 17 of New York’s new open spaces and landscapes during the 14th Annual Open House New York Weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15 and 16, 2016, New Landscapes New York tours will give visitors a chance to meet the designers.
 
“New York City is reimagining the possibilities for the urban landscape,” says OHNY executive director Gregory Wessner. “From parks like the High Line and Brooklyn Bridge Park to public spaces like the Times Square plazas to projects like the Lowline, Open House New York is thrilled to partner with ASLA-NY to showcase these works.”
 
“Cities are more than just buildings and people. Open space is a component to making a city livable,” says ASLA-NY executive director Kathy Shea. “New Landscapes New York celebrates the work of landscape architects who design and steward urban green space that not only offers beauty and areas for recreation and respite, but also economic, health, community building, and ecosystem benefits.”
