Although $5 reservations for most of the usual suspects for the seventeenth annual Open House New York Weekend are long gone, there are still plenty of opportunities to go behind the scenes at numerous unique churches, art and design studios, universities, breweries, cultural centers, and other architectural sites, particularly if you’re willing to travel away from midtown and downtown Manhattan. There are hundreds of locations that are open for free, although you might have to wait on long lines, whereas snagging a reservation at one of the below guarantees you admission. Among the classic free sites are the Actors’ Temple, the African Burial Ground National Monument, the AT&T Long Distance Building Lobby, the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum, the Brooklyn Army Terminal, Castle Williams on Governors Island, the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, Central Park’s Belvedere Castle, Central Synagogue, City Hall, Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, the Edgar Allan Poe Cottage, FDR Four Freedoms State Park, the Federal Hall National Memorial, the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, Fort Tilden in the Rockaways, Fort Tryon Park Cottage & Heather Garden, the General Grant National Memorial, the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of the City of New York — and that is only through the beginning of the alphabet. Reservation lines close soon, so you better hurry.
