Some call the Brooklyn Lyceum a gym, others, a theater. Some even have the audacity to call it a cafe. It is, undeniably, all of these things – but it’s not a bathhouse. At least not anymore.
As a part of Open House New York next weekend, the 100 year-old building formerly known as Bathhouse #7 will be open for tours. Owner and Managing Director Eric Richmond will helm the event, offering interested visitors their very own personalized (and FREE) tours. The plan is to offer one every hour (or so) from 10 AM to 7PM on Saturday and Sunday, which is, frankly, a lot of tours.
The event, serendipitously, coincides with Beer and Whiskey Marketplace. As if you needed another reason to go. Ladies and Gentleman mark your calendars.
