There's a magical venue in Long Island, NY perhaps you have't heard about, or maybe you have been dying to visit. The Foundry is a restored industrial building from the 19th century which was one of several steel foundries in the Long Island City area that catered to the needs of NYC's riverfront manufacturers. As the only metal foundry still in the area intact, it is a very special find ever since it opened its doors for events in 2001.
Today, it is used for filming locations, weddings, and other special events. It offers beautiful historic features such as brick walls and thick ivy-clad exteriors for an ambience hard to replicate.
We love how The Foundry offers multiple areas for your ceremony, reception cocktail hour., and for photography. Just looking at photos, you notice there is a breathtaking element around every corner. Take a walk through the many options below.
On the Terrace, guests can admire the beautiful view of New York City and The Queensboro Bridge. Have your cocktail hour with the view in the background where people can feel the true essence of New York, take photos, and feel invigorated with that special balcony feeling.
Capacity - 80-90 for cocktails.
For a sunny space without quite being outdoors, The Greenhouse is a perfect medium between inside and out. Ivy vines trickle down the light brick walls provide a complementing backdrop. One of the newer spaces of the Foundry, this space makes for dreamy photos. One of the ideas we love is lining the quiet bubbling fountain with candles. Capacity: 100 for ceremony, cocktails or dancing, 80 for dinner.
Indoor Main Space
"Old stone; exposed metal work; a gorgeous back courtyard; and all that ivy!" - Review from WeddingWire
In the heart of the Foundry is a beautiful raw space - concrete, brick, and metal. Renting The Foundry includes the interior, which is the ground floor, second level mezzanine, a fully equipped kitchen, and three staff personnel onsite for your event. (The Courtyard (with or without tent), Terrace, and The Greenhouse are three additional spaces you can add to your rental. )
A unique ivy-covered and plant filled courtyard with views of the Queensboro Bridge. Out on a patio under the sky, enjoy a large dinner party here for up to 200 for cocktails, 165 for dinner.
(Due to possibility of snow, tent rental is not available December, January, and February).
