About BNH

The five-story building was designed by
William C. Frohne in the Renaissance Revival style, and built in 1896. It is a rare survivor of the many social halls built in the nineteenth century for New York City's immigrant ethnic communities.

The Bohemian National Hall (Česká národní budova) has been an important center for Czech and Slovak culture in New York City for more than one hundred years. Since its beginning it has served as a focal point for its community, offering ethnic food, Czech language and history classes as well as space for its large community to meet and hold various events.
