Open House New York
October 13-14 2018

Open House New York Weekend is a citywide celebration of architecture, urban design, and New York City. For two days each October, Open House New York unlocks the doors of New York’s most important buildings, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build, and preserve New York.  

From historical to contemporary, residential to industrial, hundreds of sites across the five boroughs are open to visit, with tours, talks, performances, and other special events taking place over the course of the festival. Through the unparalleled access that it enables, OHNY Weekend deepens our understanding of the importance of architecture and urban design to foster a more vibrant civic life, and helps catalyze a citywide conversation about how to build a better New York. 

More than 85,000 New Yorkers and visitors from around the world participate in the two-day festival each year, which is made possible with the help of more than 1,200 volunteers. 

Open House New York Weekend is organized by Open House New York, a nonprofit organization that advocates for an open and inclusive city through year-round programs and the annual OHNY Weekend.
