Open House New York this weekend

Inside one of the Greenbelt Native Plant Center's many greenhouses

The Greenbelt Native Plant Center is one of many sites open to the public this weekend.

This Saturday and Sunday, October 10th and 11th, is Open House New York weekend.  OHNY’s 7th annual offerings include building tours and site visits of unique locations across the five boroughs.  Staten Island is represented by its array of historic buildings as well as two Parks-related listings: Freshkills Park and the Greenbelt Native Plant Center (GNPC).  Visiting the GNPC is a great opportunity to check out their greenhouses, containerized nurseries and seed bank.  We’ve also opened four Freshkills Park site tours this weekend, but they have already filled up!  If you’re interested in coming on the public bus tour, we’ve just opened registration for our November tour dates.
