Open House New York

“Open House New York Weekend is the city’s largest free, public architecture and design festival. The event was founded on a simple but powerful idea: The best way to educate the public about architecture and design is through direct access to buildings and the people who help design, build, preserve, and activate New York. 


Since 2003, OHNY Weekend has opened up hundreds of architecturally and culturally significant buildings and sites across the five boroughs for talks, tours and special programming led by architects, engineers, preservationists, historians, city officials, and others. This year's festival will include a mix of in-person and virtual experiences.” —Open House New York

Bayside Historical Society is proud to be participating online in the 2021 Open House New York Weekend! Enjoy our special expanded 360-degree virtual tour of our landmarked 1887 Castle, which includes rooms that are normally off-limits to the public! We look forward to the Castle's reopening later this year, when we can safely welcome back in-person visits.
