New York City has some amazing architectural wonders that are open to the public every day of the year, but the City has many, many more that are not.
The Open House New York Weekend, now in it’s 14th year, hopes to bridge this gap and allow the public a rare glimpse into the privately owned and operated buildings of architectural significance.
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.
The dates for this years weekend are October 15th and 16th, at locations in all 5 boroughs. The full list of participating buildings won’t be finalized and announced until early October, but is generally quite inclusive.
The tours are free, but most require registration beforehand to keep things orderly.
