Open House New York 2010

Brilliantly sunny and summery, this weekend was the perfect backdrop to Open House New York.  And at 9am I was off to an utterly packed day, chocker with Sunday Funday activities.  A bagel, a little strolling in the sunshine, a Blue Marble pumpkin ice cream on a cone, some design/house envy, a brewery tour with some sampling of the malt barley, a wee walk around Red Hook, and a fantastic dinner at the ever enjoyable Fort Defiance.

10a Walking the Wallabout (Clinton Hill)



Street signs adorn the corners of buildings

Park Avenue in Clinton Hill (close to the Brooklyn Navy Yard)

12pm The Slot House (designed by noRoof Architects)

Lines lines lines everywhere you look

Top floor walkway with the bedroom/first floor peeking through.  The grate was custom designed by a welder/craftsman in Williamsburg.

2pm Sixpoint Brewery Tour with Shane (founder and brewer)  In this room we sample the Pilsner.


3pm Red Hook Carriage House – the view through the bedroom

Airy and whimsical

Coziest nook I spotted all day.

Morning glories in full bloom everywhere I looked in Red Hook

An herb/vegetable garden in the back of a pickup truck parked in Red Hook.  Mini zoo/farm.  Or is it?

Fort Defiance

Pork chops and sea bass – oh my!  Sixpoint’s on tap.
