long island city, New York City
The Foundry, located in Long Island City in Queens, is a truly unique NYC wedding venue. This former 19th century industrial building has been re-purposed but still retains many of its original features. If industrial charm is your thing then this venue provides it in spades; what with its raw brick walls, bare iron framework, open skylights and various gantries that provide guest seating. Lowly-lit, this venue bleeds atmosphere and intimacy.
In addition, The Foundry has an outdoor courtyard for ceremonies or cocktail hour, and a verdant rooftop terrace — offering unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline across the East River.
