A wave of new development is dramatically reshaping Downtown Brooklyn. On June 23, Open House New York will open more than a dozen buildings and sites to give you a chance to explore the dynamic change now underway in the neighborhood.

A hyper-local version of OHNY Weekend, Making Place: Downtown Brooklyn will kick-off with a panel discussion about the past and future of the neighborhood, followed by open houses and tours at a mix of sites that will include residential, commercial, and cultural spaces, as well as design studios and offices. The day will end with a closing reception and happy hour.
