About The Foundry

A 19th Century Foundry, meticulously restored to retain its industrial character.

The Foundry is a 19th Century building that has been meticulously restored to showcase its industrial character and stunning proportions. Adaptable for many uses and available to rent for weddings, corporate events, launch parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, film, video and photo shoots.

The Foundry interior boasts 3,000 square feet of raw space with a lush outdoor courtyard, rooftop terrace with views of the Manhattan skyline, indoor greenhouse, lounge space, billiards room and fully equipped industrial kitchen.

In the very early 1900's The Foundry housed The Albra Metal Foundry, whose logo is still visible on the corner of the property today. By 1906, The Foundry was one of several steel foundries in the Long Island City area that catered to the needs of New York City's riverfront manufacturers.

By the 1970's The Foundry was essentially an abandoned space, housing defunct vehicles and a mountain of debris. In 1980 the Du Val family purchased and gradually restored the space to reflect its original industrial character. We began hosting events and weddings 15 years ago in 2001. It is the only foundry in the area still standing today.

Wonderful venue! I held my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner at The Foundry. Gary S. was very accommodating. He made certain all our needs were met. Our Guest complemented us on both events. I had brunch with a full omelet station for my bridal shower. And, separate food stations for our rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent! We were very happy with their services. We would use them again in a heartbeat.

I always love working at The Foundry. It used to be just down the street from where I lived, and now that I moved further away, it's definitely one of the things I miss. Beautiful location - great staff!

We've been lucky enough to work at the Foundry almost every week for the past few years and are still blown away and awestruck every time we visit. It's hard to believe a dream venue like the Foundry exists in NYC (or anywhere) They've got it ALL! Each design detail has been perfectly thought out. They've somehow managed to preserve the original historical elements and details while making it feel fresh and impeccable. Even the sunlight there filters beautifully and the vibes are always so magical. Theres always something new and interesting to look at and they're constantly thinking of ways to make sure their guests' experiences are top notch. Not only is the venue itself incredible, The team there is GOLD. They'll make sure your process is flawless and are total professionals all while also being super easy to work with.

Make no mistake the Foundry is a unique and fabulous venue however it's Alison and her staff that make it the special place it is. They are warm and accommodating and make every one there, whether it's a client, guest or vendor feel special and welcome. As a DJ who works in many venues here in New York City I really appreciate their hospitality.

Amazing space to have your wedding or any event. The possibilities are endless!

Amazing venue! Highly recommend!
