It’s fantastic to see all the open houses pop up in anticipation of the Partners and Preservation grant awards. There are nine scheduled for this weekend in Brooklyn alone. (And have you voted for your favorite restoration project yet?) Pictured above, the the Coney Island History Project will hold an open house for the B & B Carousel from noon to 4pm. Since the carousel is away in Ohio being restored, architectural renderings, photos, and film of the restoration process will be on view. There will also be a contest to name the first horse. Other Open Houses in Brooklyn include the Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center, the Brooklyn Public Library, and the Tug Pegasus & Waterfront Museum Barge. The map of all BK locations can be peeped here [PDF]. Make sure to send along pictures of the historic sites you visit if this is part of your weekend!
