OPEN HOUSE NEW YORK WEEKEND

PERSONALIZED TOURS OF THE BOHEMIAN NATIONAL HALL. For two days each October, the annual 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.


October 15 & 16
10AM-6PM

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.
Through the unparalleled access that it enables, OHNY Weekend deepens our understanding of the importance of architecture and urban design to foster a more vibrant civic life, and helps catalyze a citywide conversation about how to build a better New York. 

The Bohemian National Hall will be featured as part of OHNY and offers personalized tours of the building over two days. During the tours guests will also be entertained by site specific performers from Tami Stronach Dance.

Guests will also have the opportunity of viewing the private Dvořák study usually not open to the public. The tour will take visitors through 5 floors and the rooftop of this Willian C. Frohne landmark built in 1896 in the Renaissance Revival Style. In 1994 it was designated a New York Landmark and the façade was restored by Jan Hird Pokorny in 1995. In 2001 The Czech Republic bought the building for an historic $1. The building was renovated by Martin Holub in 2003. The interior was renovated by Milan Kviz and Atelier M1 in 2007. By 2008 it was fully renovated into the post-modern surprise, hidden gem on the Upper East Side.
