Get ready to explore the city this weekend - it's open house new york time! There are various homes, parks, landmarks, studios, and more open for the public to visit and learn more. open house new york has programs, tours, and podcasts - learn more at the website.

Here's a pick in each borough:
- The new Bronx Museum of the Arts
- Fort Totten in Queens
- Alice Austen House Museum in Staten Island
- One Hanson Place in Brooklyn
- Diker Pavilion at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian in Manhattan

Please note that some sites require reservations and may already be fully booked; also, some sites are open only one day. And for those curious about the fate of 2 Columbus Circle, there's a Museum of Arts & Design presentation in Manhattan (it's a talk about 2 Columbus Circle).
