Open House New York Weekend is approaching, that time of year when private residences, historic landmarks, churches and businesses open their doors to the public to celebrate architecture and design. There are tons of interesting things to do this year, from touring a rooftop farm, a distillery and the third phase of the High Line (not yet open to the public), but we wanted to highlight some of the fancy real estate options. Here are places that will let us studio dwellers in while we keep dreaming of making it big:
This 1905 schoolhouse was abandoned in the 1970s, then redeveloped. The exterior of the building is in the Gothic style, but the units have modern, loftlike floor plans.
Open House New York is Oct. 15 and 16, but many of the events require reservations. The site started accepting them Wednesday, but seems to be experiencing technical trouble, Open House's Twitter account attributes it to demand.
