Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This historic former 1889 brass foundry makes a cool backdrop for events, thanks to its original brick walls, a high ceiling, and gleaming chandeliers.
  • You can have an indoor/outdoor celebration: The Green Building features 15-foot floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a courtyard and bring in abundant natural light. Have your ceremony in the courtyard, then continue the celebration inside! There's also a private suite that can be used for a VIP bar or dressing area.
  • It's conveniently located: Situated in Brooklyn's Carroll Gardens neighborhood, this rustic-chic event site is equally accessible to Manhattan-dwellers and suburban New Yorkers alike.
