New York is Open!
Unlock the City
Open House New York is a nonprofit organization that promotes unparalleled access to the city—to the places, people, projects, systems, and ideas that define New York and its future.
“Forget the Mayor, Open House New York holds the keys to the city.”

From municipal bonds to aﬀordable housing tax credits, highway construction to park development, the ﬂow of ﬁnancial capital underpins the design and function of the built environment, shaping who has access to opportunity—and who does not.
Launching 2023, Building Capital: The Value of Place is a multiyear investigation into how different forms of capital—financial, cultural, community—determine quality of place and quality of life in New York.
