OHNY Weekend Highlight: Factory Friday

As part of its ongoing commitment to celebrating manufacturing as critical to the cultural and economic health of New York City, Open House New York has once again partnered with Made in NYC to open the doors of factories and manufacturing spaces across the five boroughs on OHNY Weekend. Factory Friday is the culmination of Made in NYC Week, Made in NYC’s annual celebration of local manufacturing.

On Friday, October 18, more than two dozen members of the Made in NYC network will open to the public for special, rarely-offered tours of their spaces. See what the spaces of 21st-century manufacturing look like, and hear from manufacturers themselves about how everything from fabric flowers to steel beams is made right here in New York City!

Tour times for participating factories vary, and advance reservations are required for all tours. More information about each site will be available in the Plan Your Weekend section of our website on October 1. Reservation Day is October 8 at 11 am.
