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
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.
National Hall will be featured as part of OHNY and offers personalized tours of
the building over two days.
As a sidebar to Open House New York, 25 students from the Mannes School of Music will perform short piano pieces in the Ballroom of the Bohemian National Hall in a powerful tribute to those who perished during the Holocaust and to those who have had the courage to break the silence.
This event is being held in conjunction with the Drumming for Bubny event in Prague on the same day.

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.
