The roof of New Design High School (formerly Open Road) (Lower East Side, Manhattan)
350 Grand Street, New York, NY 10002

Our shows at the Open Road Rooftop will offer film screenings in one of New York's great undiscovered rooftop spaces. The building that once housed Seward Park High School is now home to several smaller charter schools, including our partners at New Design High School, and the students and staff at New Design have partnered with street artist legends to decorate this magnificent space with dozens of extraordinary graffiti murals that make Open Road Roof a truly unforgettable place to watch films. The rooftop area is being revitalized through the efforts of Open Road of New York, a group founded in 1990 to work with children, teenagers, and adults on outdoor environmental projects.

Go to to find out more about the roof and the school and to to find out about what Open Road is doing to restore community spaces all over the city.
