What is OHNY Weekend?

Launched in 2003, Open House New York Weekend is an annual festival that opens hundreds of noteworthy or significant places across the five boroughs to foster discovery and delight for all New Yorkers and deepen the public’s understanding of how design can strengthen communities and improve quality of life.

On October 21-23, 2022, the 20th Annual OHNY Weekend festival will offer a mix of in-person experiences, self-guided explorations, and digital content—inviting you to glimpse everything from single rooms, studios, factories, and public spaces to entire buildings, blocks, bike corridors, and waterways.

Many of the places and experiences offered during OHNY Weekend are rarely accessible to the public. OHNY Weekend provides a special opportunity to peek behind the curtain, explore, and discover New York with fellow adventurers.

We’re celebrating this milestone year with an expanded mission to promote citywide access to all New Yorkers. And, in the spirit of being a more open, accessible, and inclusive organization, this year’s festival will be 100% free to the public.

Each year I build a complex scheduling spreadsheet to maximize the number of OHNY Weekend sites I can visit. Don’t you?

OHNY Weekend is the ultimate opportunity to learn and experience what you mistakenly thought you already knew about NYC.

New York is not monolithic! It’s open and complex!

I discovered Bronx Community College through OHNY Weekend. I love Marcel Breuer and was fascinated by the campus. I was literally high on architecture that day.

It’s like Christmas (for us agnostic, non-religious urbanist nerds)! It is the most wonderful time of the year.
