Bohemian National Hall on Google Maps Virtual Tour

Come and take a VIRTUAL TOUR of the Bohemian Nation Hall
Our five-story building was designed by William C. Frohne in the Renaissance Revival style, and built in 1896 and renovated in 2008. It is a rare survivor of the many social halls built in the nineteenth century for New York City's immigrant ethnic communities. BNH hosts many cultural events and celebrates the arts, film, literature, education and more.
It is also a monument to the history of immigrants in New York City and the United States.
