Over the past fifteen years, Open House New York has opened more than 1,100 sites to more than a million people, who took more pictures than we could ever count! To celebrate the 15th anniversary of OHNY Weekend, Open House New York is launching a Kickstarter campaign to publish a book to share some the stunning pictures that have been submitted as part of the annual OHNY Weekend photo competition. 
Because OHNY Weekend takes place across all five boroughs; because the festival opens a diverse mix of sites, from infrastructure facilities to cultural spaces to workspaces and private homes; and because of the sheer number of submissions, the collection of photos offers a view of New York City that is unique in its breadth. It is a portrait of the greatest city in the world as seen by the people who love it the most–people like you!

But if this book is going to happen, we need your help! Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that connects people with creative projects that need support. But it is all or nothing–if a project matches or exceeds its goal, it receives funding; if it falls short, it gets nothing. This book can only be published with your support. Visit our Kickstarter campaign today–with a pledge of $35 or more, you can reserve a copy of the book and help make it a reality. Learn more in the video above, or check out a small sample of some of the amazing photos OHNY Weekend visitors have taken below.
