Gothamist Visits the Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage & Salt Shed
October 19, 2017
During last week’s Open House New York weekend (OHNY), Scott Lynch of Gothamist was one of hundreds of people to tour Dattner Architects’ Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage and Salt Shed. Documenting what he learned, Lynch published an article about “what went into the design of, and what goes on within, these incredible structures.” OHNY visitors toured the “active design staircase,” which provides amazing views of the Hudson River and New Jersey skyline, and encourages DSNY workers to take the stairs instead of the elevator. Next door, the Spring Street Salt Shed was open to each tour, displaying the 5,000 tons of Chilean salt stored in preparation for the winter.
