Open House New York

For the seventh consecutive year, Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church opens its doors for Open House New York Weekend. For two days each October, OHNY unlocks some of New York’s most important cultural treasures, offering an extraordinary opportunity to experience the city and meet the people who design, build and preserve New York.  

Fifth Avenue will offer ongoing, docent-led tours of the Sanctuary, the Chesnut Gallery and Kirkland Chapel. Special demonstrations of the Sanctuary's mighty Austin organ and visits to the Sanctuary attic and historic clock tower also are scheduled each day (advance registration required). See the complete schedule below.

All events are free and open to all. This is a wonderful opportunity to introduce friends and neighbors to Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church!
