This weekend hundreds of sites around NYC will be open to visit which are usually closed to the public.
Open House New York is now in its 13th year. Over the past few years Kim and I have visited historic homes, toured sections of the High Line before they were completed, go to see Murray’s cheese caves and visited the amazing TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport.
This year, while looking over the list of sites participating in OHNY, Kim and I came up with what I feel is a good plan.

New York City is filled with great places to get pizza and many of them have been around for a very long time.
We have Lombardi’s, American’s first pizzeria around since 1905, although not in its original location. Totonno’s has been serving up their excellent pies in Coney Island since 1924 and John’s of Bleeker St has been around since 1929. There are many other pizzerias around NYC that seem to have been around forever. One of my favorites, I feel doesn’t get mentioned as much as it should.

The festival featured a variety of seminars, discussions & tastings on Saturday as well as the Future Food Expo both days. Sunday was the All-Star BBQ with music by Questlove. Luckily we went early and left just in time before the rain started falling.
An awesome food festival is coming to Brooklyn, New York this weekend.
Taste Talks will host their event in Brooklyn and then make a stop the first weekend of October in Chicago.
The festivals “celebrate the future of taste through symposia, tastings, dinners and parties. Taste Talks brings together thought leaders and luminaries from around the world together with everyday food enthusiasts to engage in great conversation, amazing food and one-of-a-kind experiences“.
