Tens of thousands of New Yorkers – along with visitors from across the country and around the world – came together this year for the 2015 Open House New York Weekend, crisscrossing the five boroughs in celebration of this extraordinary city and its architecture. From food production spaces to dazzling landmark interiors, the hills of Governors Island to a gilded Wonder Theater in Brooklyn, this year’s Weekend gave visitors unparalled access to the city, deepening our understanding of the complexities of design, construction, and preservation, and providing a visceral reminder of how thoughtful design can immeasurably enrich our day-to-day-lives.

Our deepest thanks to all of you who made it possible: all of our funders, including premier sponsor Porcelanosa, without whose support there would be no OHNY Weekend; our site hosts, intrepid individuals and organizations who opened their doors to welcome the public into their spaces; the record-breaking 1,200 volunteers who helped manage crowds with kindness and grace; and the tens of thousands of visitors who imbue this event with boundless energy and enthusiasm. It is truly a privilege to collaborate with all of you on this incredible festival.
