What is Open House New York Weekend?
Open House New York Weekend (OPNY) is an annual festival that takes place every October. The 16th Annual Open House New York Weekend will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, October 12, 13 and 14, 2018. OPNY is a citywide celebration of architecture, urban design, and New York City. More than 250 buildings and projects across New York’s five boroughs – from infrastructure facilities to cultural spaces and from workspaces to private residences – open their doors to the public for tours and talks with architects, urban designers, historians, preservationists, and city leaders.
This year, OPNY is partnering with Made in NYC to open more than a dozen factories, giving you a glimpse of how New York City’s makers produce everything from silk flowers to structural steel to distilled spirits.
The festival has locations across the five boroughs! See below for our favorite Uptown Picks – and visit their website for the complete list
OPNY provides complimentary admission during the weekend, and tours will be available. For more information, click HERE.
A multi-disciplinary center based in East Harlem, New York City, CCCADI integrates art, education, activism and conscious cultural tourism to foster social transformation. They partner with other community organizations, as well as host SouSou Saturdays – a family friendly event held every second Saturday! Their new home is the reuse of a building that was originally constructed as a firehouse in 1889.
Open access is only available on Saturday October 13 – for more information, visit OPNY’s site HERE.
