Presented by WNBC and LX.TV, OpenHouse New York is an original weekly television series about New York's residential real estate market. Hosted by LX.TV's Sara Gore and George Oliphant, OpenHouse New York features weekly access to distinctive and noteworthy properties in the New York tri-state area.
