Click here to purchase tickets We are now sold out for the Urban Omnibus Block Party 2014, a benefit event celebrating the first five years of The Architectural League’s online publication dedicated to defining the culture of citymaking.

This year’s event will take place at The Gowanus Ballroom, a metalworking shop by day and creative exhibition space by night located in a Civil War-era factory in the Gowanus Industrial Arts Complex. Five years ago, when the site first launched, the Omnibus team was headquartered in Gowanus at the Old American Can Factory. We have long since joined the rest of our League colleagues in Soho, but we are excited to return to the neighborhood we once called home for our fifth birthday celebration. A projection installation produced in collaboration with Nuit Blanche New York will illuminate the space. And we’ll be serving food from New York’s own Dinosaur BBQ, birthday pie from Greenpoint’s Pie Corps, beer from Queens-based Finback Brewery, and wine from Bottlerocket. Come help us celebrate this significant milestone. Buy your tickets today and we’ll see you on Friday, March 14th!
