OHNY Weekend Highlight:

Engineering New York 

October 17 & 18 2015

New York has always been a city of engineering feats, home to historically important projects-from the Brooklyn Bridge to the subway system to the Empire State Building- that pushed the boundaries of structural possibility. Over the past decade, architects and engineers have continued this long tradition of structural innovation, using new materials and technologies to design and build a new generation of New York icons that advance the art of engineering while enriching the city's built environment.


During this year's OHNY Weekend, Open House New York and the Structural Engineers Association of New York (SEAoNY) partner to open a selection of recent projects that illustrate the state of the art of structural engineering in New York City. Tours will help visitors to understand these projects from the perspective of the structural engineers who helped transform them from idea to reality.

Several Engineering New York sites feature Open Access hours; others require Advance Reservations, as noted below. For more information about these sites, or to make reservations where necessary, visit ohny.org/engineering.
