Events & Programming


August 2018 Edition

We hope that you have been enjoying the wide variety of 

My Summer House NYC programming. All season long NYC Parks and HHT have been collaborating to highlight the best events at our houses where you can kick back, cool off, and make the most of your summer!

August is Family Fun Month. Scroll down to view a few events that are perfect for the family and a link to a growing list of activities brought to you by the HHT houses. And exciting news, the Morris-Jumel Mansion Museum has reopened its doors after a pipe burst from the January snowstorm. Their darkly humorous exhibition on New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams (of Addams Family fame) has been extended to August 26th.
