About the NYC Green Buildings Open House

The Green Buildings Open House is GreenhomeNYC’s semi-annual guided tour of green buildings all over New York City, taking place in the Spring and Fall of every year.

The event gives New Yorkers a chance to get inside Green buildings and hear about their inner workings from the owners, architects, and engineers who designed, built and operate them. Visitors will come away with new expectations of comfort, livability, energy and environmental benefits.

Since 2003, GreenHomeNYC has organized the NYC Green Buildings Open House as a part of Northeast Sustainable Energy Associaion’s (NESEA) Green Buildings Open House and the American Solar Energy Society’s (ASES) National Solar Tour.
