The Schermerhorn is part of Open House New York Weekend 2014!

We are pleased to share that Common Ground will be participating in Open House New York 2014, a weekend that celebrates great design and beautiful spaces in New York City.

On Saturday, October 11, we will open up our Schermerhorn residence for a limited number of tours. Registration will open on October 1, 2014 via the OHNY.org website at 11 a.m.  If you are interested, we encourage you to register as soon as possible, as the tours will likely fill up quickly.

While touring the building’s various spaces, visitors will learn how Common Ground and its partners, The Actors Fund and Center for Urban Community Services, address homelessness within the building, while also strengthening the local artistic community through the use of rehearsal and performance spaces.

In the likely event that tours fill to capacity, we will plan additional tours in the months to come.
