Open House New York is thrilled to announce that Rizzoli Bookstore will serve as the official information hub for the 2019 OHNY Weekend. As part of this special collaboration, the bookstore will also host special programming throughout the Weekend. OHNY and Rizzoli invite you to stop by for a series of book talks featuring writers and artists discussing books representing a unique mix of New York-centric themes — from urban photography to critical commentary on the economic and social future of New York City. Each talk will last approximately 30 minutes, followed by Q&A and book signings.
On Saturday, October 19th at 1:00PM, author Thomas Mellins will give a presentation on his book New York Rising: An Illustrated History from the Durst Collection, an illustrated history of real estate development in Manhattan, a story of speculation and innovation–of the big ideas, big personalities, and big risks that collectively shaped a city like no other.
