Open House New York is an annual weekend-long event celebrating historic landmarks and buildings all across the five boroughs of NYC. Experience unparalleled access to the extraordinary architecture of New York and celebrate the people who help design, build, and preserve the city.
This year, you’ll be able to take part in walking tours of historic and contemporary architectural wonders, then get involved in a conversation or two about how architecture and urban design sustain New York as a vibrant place to live, work, and learn.
Open House New York will be unlocking the doors of New York’s most important buildings over the weekend of October 14-15. More than 140 locations will be opened up to curious guests, including the Brooklyn Army Terminal, the Little Red Lighthouse in Washington Heights and Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx.
The full list of participating sites for the 15th Anniversary Open House New York Weekend will become available here on Wednesday, October 4.
The launch event will be held on Thursday, October 12 at Jane’s Carousel. For the uninitiated, Jane’s Carousel is a classic 3-row, 48-horse carousel with carved horses and chariots installed along the East River at Brooklyn Bridge Park in an exquisite jewel box by Pritzker Prize winning architect Jean Nouvel. A not bad way to kick off weekend of special events and generous access.
