Each year one weekend in October is dedicated to giving New Yorkers the chance to explore the city’s hundreds of significant and most noteworthy buildings and structures across the five boroughs for Open House New York (OHNY), and this year it’s taking place October 20th through October 22nd.
Launched in 2003, Open House New York is on its 21st iteration this year, and will offer a mixture of in-person experiences, self-guided explorations, and digital content, inviting NYers to foster discovery and deepen their understanding of design with an inside look at everything from studios, factories, rooftop gardens, historic houses, waterways, and more.
To make this weekend of exploration accessible to all New Yorkers, the festival 100% free to the public!
In addition to just having the opportunity to view these places, OHNY will also host 350+ talks, tours, special behind-the-scenes programs, and more! This year’s weekend lineup will be released on their website on October 5th.
Join in on celebrating OHNY’s 21st anniversary at their weekend launch party happening Wednesday, October 18th at the Garden at 550 Madison from 7:30-9:30pm. Learn more about the launch party here.
