Open House New York Weekend

October 17, 2020 - October 18, 2020

What is Open House New York Weekend?

Every October, Open House New York Weekend 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 OHNY Weekend. 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.


Updates for 2020 

Since COVID-19 first hit this spring, we’ve vowed to deliver the best OHNY Weekend we can. 

Why? We believe that our ability to share the city is fundamental to our civic life, our citizenship, and our humanity.

Of course, the health of our city and our community is a top priority and all activities will comply with public health recommendations from local and state officials. 

With that in mind, this year’s festival will feature a hybrid of virtual experiences and outdoor self-guided explorations. Imagine: Digital sneak peeks, hyperlocal itineraries, and zero crowded elevator rides. 

The full festival lineup will be released in early fall. Sign up for our mailing list and follow us on Instagram to be among the first to learn more as key dates and additional details are announced.
