Access is at the core of what we do.

A note from our Interim Executive Director

Did Open House New York help you discover a new corner of the city this year?

Perhaps it was a boat tour exploring cargo infrastructure, a policy talk at the intersection of streetscape design and public health, or the first public look at Brooklyn’s Batcave-turned-arts space.

Or maybe you were one of the 25,000 participants in OHNY Weekend, our signature festival that delivered the equivalent of 60 days of free programming and reached New Yorkers across a whopping 84% of the city’s zip codes.

Sharing the experience of the city is what unites our community of Open House New Yorkers. It is only through the generosity of our partners, our volunteers, and supporters like you that we are able to unlock the city.

During this season of giving, please consider making a fully tax-deductible donation to support the kind of year-round public programming that demystifies this complex, kaleidoscopic city and makes it a little more accessible, inclusive, and open for us all.

Make a contribution:

Thank you, always—let’s explore!


PS – Our gift to you: This December, our team is launching the first-ever OHNY Weekend Encore, a blitz of tours, special events, and more designed to highlight our partners and deepen your connection to the city.
