Event description

Description

Over the past 30 years, one Brooklyn resident has quietly compiled a collection of thousands of artifacts in her industrial loft left by friends, and invited guests, alike — from the antique to the bizarre, each with their own unique story to tell. Now, for the first time ever, the apartment owner is ready to open her doors and show off her cabinet of curiosity to curious New Yorkers looking to peek inside one of NYC's most interesting spaces.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive look inside the House of Collection, a private 2,000-square-foot apartment located inside a refurbished bookbinding factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, that contains a sprawling curated collection of lost-and-found, passed down, left behind, and gifted items to the house.

Led by Paige, the Mad Hatter of this eclectic wonderland, our experience down the rabbit hole of one of New York City’s most unique apartments will include:

  • The origin story behind the House of Collection, from how Paige first acquired the apartment 30 years ago, to her decisions to transform it into an urban sanctuary containing over two-decades-worth of items from friends and strangers
  • A tour through the nooks and crannies of Brooklyn's most interesting home, which includes a massive indoor garden housing over 70 plants and a 'conservatory' containing items like antique garments to rare artwork
  • A discussion around the house's most interesting pieces and artifacts, such as steel tools from abandoned farms and tiny glass bottles pried out of the sands of New York's Dead Horse Bay


No experience at the House of Collection is ever the same.
