(Relaxnews) -

At America's largest architect and design event, the 7th Annual Open House Weekend in New York City October 10-11, the public can embark on individual tours of usually closed or unknown spaces in the city and submit their best pictures afterwards.

Out of the 350 seldom-seen spots around the city, visitors will have access to the Apollo Theater, the abandoned 1844 railway tunnel under Atlantic Avenue and the Thaw Conservation Center at the Morgan Library and Museum. Among design and architecture fans, places such as Richard Seifert's Centre Point, Berthold Lubetkin's Highpoint, and Erno Goldfinger's Trellick Tower have proven popular in the past.

In an effort to bring the public closer to New York's urban landscape, there will be design and architecture events, all free of charge, divided into six different schemes: opendialogues (presentations and discussions), sustainablenewyork (ethical building methods), architecturemoves (concerts and dance performances), OHNY tours (guided tours by historians), OHNY kids (children's activities) and OHNY's focus.

This year, that focus will be a photography contest, with visitors being able to submit pictures of their favorite sites of the event in the four categories interiors, exteriors, details, and people

The entire list of places will be available on October 1 on the event's website.
