A pop-up park offers greenery in winter and boutique fitness classes
The Openhouse Gallery, a 4,000-square-foot Nolita event space, is being transformed into an indoor park from January 7–30 called Park Here. With forest murals, lawns, and even trees, it promises to be the season’s “ultimate venue for escape and relaxation.” Or lunch on a park bench in the dead of winter.
Taking a look at the park calendar for the month, it looks poised to deliver on the promise.
Plans are to offer hour-long lunch-break yoga classes with instructors from YogaWorks Monday through Thursday (noon–1:00). And Real Pilates founder Alycea Ungaro is teaching on the mornings of January 10 and 17 at 9:00. Hardly a typical winter walk in the park.
