We’ve found ourselves peering into beloved spaces this year, from our homes, over the internet, but we haven’t lost our deep appreciation of architecture and design!

EverGreene continues to support a few of our favorite annual, NYC-based celebrations in 2020. Check out some of the amazing programming they offer during the month of October, starting with the links below!

Open House New York Weekend

Date: October 17 & 18
The full festival lineup will be released in early fall.

Every October, Open House New York Weekend unlocks the doors of New York’s most important buildings, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build, and preserve New York.

From historical to contemporary, residential to industrial, hundreds of sites across the five boroughs are open to visit, with tours, talks, performances, and other special events taking place over the course of OHNY Weekend. With this unparalleled access, OHNY Weekend deepens our understanding of the importance of architecture and urban design in fostering a more vibrant civic life, and helps catalyze a citywide conversation about how to build a better New York.
