OHNY Weekend 2017


Open House New York

For two days each October, the annual 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.

The full list of participating sites and programs will become available on Wednesday, October 4. Free printed event guides with all Open Access sites will also be inserted into the October 4 issue of Time Out New York; available at all TONY street distribution locations; at all west elm stores in New York City; and at select sites in all five boroughs.
