See the best photos from the event, dedicated to off-limits New York City places

Another Open House New York is now on the books, and judging by the photos posted to social media over the weekend—where the hashtag #OHNYwknd was in frequent use—it was a banner year, with hundreds of fascinating, little-seen New York City sites open to the public. Among the most popular, according to our not-so-scientific scouring: Lite Brite Neon Studios in Gowanus, an Instagram-perfect site if ever there was one; the unusual architecture of Westbeth Artists Housing, located in the former Bell Laboratories Buildings in the West Village; and the Lowline Lab on the Lower East Side.

But there were hundreds of sites across all five boroughs welcoming visitors on Saturday and Sunday—get a peek at some of our favorites below.
