It can accommodate up to 450 seating guests and over 1,000 standing ones.
You can’t get more classic than the New York City Library. The space can be easily transformed for any kind of wedding, with its majestic marble columns, sky-high ceiling, and welcoming staircases.

The Carlyle Hotel is another very popular venue in the city. The hotel has an old town New York feel to it and is perfect for people looking for a classic venue.

The historical building was built back in the 19th century and located in Long Island. It’s only a few steps away from the East River and was originally the site of a factory manufacturing fine varnishes. Now, it is considered one of the best venues for events and weddings. This is also the only foundry still standing in the area.
What sets this location apart is its beautiful ivy-covered terraces and its raw appeal. This place also has a clear European influence and offers great views of industrial New York.
