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 21st through October 23rd.
Launched in 2003, Open House New York is on its 20th 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.
And this year OHNY is celebrating a milestone with their mission to make this weekend of exploration accessible to all New Yorkers, making this year’s festival 100% free to the public!
In addition to just having the opportunity to view these places, OHNY will also host 250+ talks, tours, special behind-the-scenes programs, and more! This year’s weekend lineup will be released on their website on October 6.
Join in on celebrating OHNY’s 20th anniversary at their launch party happening Thursday, October 20th at Surrogate’s Courthouse in Lower Manhattan from 6:30p.m. – 9:30p.m. Here you’ll be treated to an evening of food, drinks, and special entertainment. Learn more about the launch party here.
