Open House New York

Want to go behind the scenes and see some of the coolest buildings in NYC? Open House New York Weekend is a popular event that sells out every year. From historical buildings that are rarely open to the public to modern masterpieces, join hundreds of New Yorkers on site tours, talks with architects, designers and preservationists. Reservations open in late September. We recommend hitting refresh to nab those tough to get tickets.
