I am OHNY is an annual campaign that celebrates OHNY’s community of supporters. Phillip Sulke is founder of Shopikon and an OHNY member. He has contributed and participated in a number of our programs, from talks and boat tours, OHNY Weekend, and special events!
“OHNY appeared on my radar for its yearly OHNY Weekend. Once I visited a few sites I was sold. I knew that I wanted to participate more and not have to wait a full year,” says Phillip. “Being passionate about urban development and architecture made it very easy to join OHNY.”
Thank you Phillip for supporting our work as an OHNY member!
What do you love most about New York City?
I love the fact that you can never keep up with everything, whether it is music, art, or food. There is always something to learn, try, and experience. No other city makes it so easy to recharge your creative batteries.
What is your most memorable Open House New York experience?
Taking a taxi boat down the Gowanus Canal. It was such an unusual and neglected corner of the city. I could have never seen without OHNY in such a way.
If OHNY could grant you an all-access pass to any place in the city, where would you go and why?
I would visit all skyscrapers that were built between 1910 and 1935, especially their penthouses. Designers and architects from that period had so much more leeway to be inventive and playful with their ideas.
OHNY is important to New York City because…
It opens locked doors and tells untold stories.
From the Annual OHNY Weekend to its year-round public programs, OHNY offers you opportunities to see the city like you’ve never seen it. With your support, OHNY can continue to open the city to tens of thousands of people throughout the five boroughs, tying us closer to the places, people and stories that make New York the most extraordinary city in the world. Together, we are OHNY.
