Not So Obscure

by Don Friedman on January 21, 2016

Atlas Obscura is “the definitive guide to the world’s wondrous and curious places.” It’s effectively a smaller Wikipedia devoted to exploring the strange. I find the website to be irresistible and, inevitably, I started looking through it for buildings I know.

In addition to a bunch of buildings and sites I know from daily life – including the Trinity Place bar, where OSE staff have been known to eat – I found a number of our projects. Just in Manhattan, we’ve worked on Atlas Obscura sites Castle Williams, the John Street Methodist Church, the Players Club, the Angel Orensanz Foundation, the churchyard at Trinity Church, the Merchant’s House Museum, the New York City Marble Cemetery, the New York Marble Cemetery (yes, it’s different), and GMDC.

Every once in a while I think of a project as wondrous, but it’s nice to have confirmation.
