Open House New York is an annual weekend-long event during which historic buildings, architectural masterpieces, sundry landmarks and attractions welcome the public for great walking tours and nosing around. It's the perfect opportunity to explore normally off-limits parts of New York and have a good old snoop. Some tours require reservations, which go live on the Open House New York website in late September. In past years, the system has struggled with the deluge of R.S.V.P. requests, so prepare to be patient and keep trying. It's always worth it in the end.

When is Open House New York 2015?

The official dates for Open House New York Weekend are Saturday, October 17, through Sunday, October 18, 2015.
