Editor’s Note
For this day celebrating urban exploration, sites across New York host special events and expeditions for the curious. Each event is independent but all share a spirit of adventure. Sunshine Laundromat sets its beloved pinball machines on free play. A cruise takes passengers around the forgotten penal islands of NYC. History buffs guide a walking tour of what remains of Gilded Age Manhattan. The oldest house in Manhattan opens its doors. And that’s just half the menu.
