OHNY Stacks

OHNY Stacks is a series of book talks exploring the unknown, the unseen, and the unnoticed aspects of urban life. Join Open House New York throughout the winter as we shine a light on the books that are exploring how our cities are shaped today. These conversations, hosted by OHNY Board Member Saundra Thomas, will offer a refreshing, frank, and often humorous guide to what lives and lies beneath what’s often taken for granted in our cities.
