New York Wedding Venue
East 72nd Street and Park Drive North
New York, New York 10021
• It’s the ultimate urban oasis. Just a stroll away from New York City’s Central Park, this is the only Manhattan venue located right on a lake.
• You can explore the lake in a rented rowboat as visitors have done for 150 years, or take a ride in an authentic Venetian gondola. Your gondolier may even serenade you on your special day!
• Birds and butterflies are everywhere. Let nature lend her own color to your event. Then add your bird observations to a communal notebook, and see if you can spot any of 26 butterfly species!
There is no room rental or site fee. A nonrefundable $1,000 deposit plus a signed contract are required to reserve your date, and the balance is due 7 days prior to the event. The ceremony fee is $800 and includes 1 hour for your setup, ceremony, and breakdown. 5-hour reception packages range $165–225/person depending on the day of the week and time of year. Packages include a premium liquor open bar, passed hors d’oeuvres, 4-course plated meal (with wine service), tables, chairs, white linens, china, flatware, and more. Saturday nights require a 165-guest minimum; all other times require 125. Tax, a 9% gratuity (which goes directly to the staff), and a 13.5% administration fee are additional.
