A truly special venue!
Laura and the entire staff at Bayside Historical Society were great! The venue was beautiful, slightly off the beaten path in a cool way, which is exactly what we were looking for. It feels like an escape from the city, but it’s still easy for guests to get there. And the bang for your buck as compared to many other NYC venues can’t be overstated. The surrounding grounds are also really beautiful. It’s a special place and we’re really happy that we chose it for our special day.Sent on 01/18/2020

If you are looking for something unique and interesting for your private party, this is the place. Situated on beautiful Fort Totten, it is the kind of place that makes you feel you've gone back in time. The "castle" has different spaces for different size events. We rented the place and we found a local, recommended caterer. The whole party was terrific and our guests were amazed we found this place. The staff is great and very helpful.Sent on 06/21/2017

Bayside Historical Society was absolutely PERFCT!!! The director was EXTREMELY helpful with any and all information to help us have a perfect day. Even suggested the PERFECT caterer to handle the best evening anyone could have ever asked for. Wonderful scenic view of the bay for wedding pictures as well. Couldn't have asked for a more picturesque place to start a new life. THANK YOU!!!Sent on 11/11/2010
