We had our wedding ceremony in the HEDGE Gallery, and reception in smARTspace. We loved both spaces, and are so happy we used these venues for our wedding. Doing a DIY wedding is great for these rooms. Hilary, the owner of HEDGE, is available (for extra cost) as an event coordinator and/or florist. She is amazing. Both rooms had a lot of character and ability to be customized. 78th Street Studios has a good selection of in-house rentals which are discounted. You will likely need to pay a set-up cost with their crew, but may let you set up yourself, which is what we did, for free.

This is definitely a DIY space. They sell the space as is and are pretty up front about it. Our catering company provided and set up our tables/chairs, so that wasn't really a big deal. You can always pay extra to rent tables, chairs, and have them set up. I thought the cost was reasonable compared to the many other spaces we viewed that were much more expensive.
My only issue so far is there seems to be a lack of organization in the staff. It's very difficult to get email responses and it isn't very clear who is responsible for what. While the space is awesome they definitely lack customer service. It would be nice to just have answers to very basic questions.
