Yes, we all love October for its spooky, apple-bobbing activities that we can relish in for 31 days, but did you know it’s also New York City’s Architecture and Design Month, aptly named Archtober? I enjoy a play on words almost as much as putting together a Halloween costume. Organized by the Center for Architecture with many local collaborators, you can attend the first Brooklyn event of the lineup with a guided tour of Brooklyn Children’s Museum at noon. I highly recommend staying through the tour to make it to the new rooftop terrace. Among other events in the evening, you can attend the Short Films Walk in Soho, tour the new 80 Flatbush site with the Building Energy Exchange or explore a downtown subway station. Tickets range from free to $35, and all sorts of design events are happening throughout the month, with a new building to tour each day! Be sure to register in advance, events do sell out.
