Open House New York

Open House New York promotes broad, unparalleled access to the city—to its architecture, public spaces, neighborhoods, and people—and fosters probing civic dialogue about the urban systems that define how the city functions and who it serves. Open House New York’s call to action is values-based. We believe civic leaders must use their power to catalyze a truly open city by:

  • Increasing transparency of decision-making through open door governance
  • Prioritizing design thinking, specifically “user-centered design” that taps the expertise and experiences of communities of color
  • Leveraging the reach of cultural organizations to engage diverse communities on Mayoral priorities
