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.

The Foundry was the venue that my wife and I held our wedding at and it might be a bit biased of me to say so, but one of the most breathtaking venues that I've seen in NYC. There's a lot of flexibility in how you can arrange your wedding based on which rooms you use and what sort of meal service you have for your wedding. The employees at the venue are great, they respond quickly by email, provide a lot of information and allow you to stop by as many times as necessary for family/vendors to take a look. They let us drop off a bunch of ceremony and reception decor items two days prior to our wedding and let us pick up leftover food the morning after our wedding. The biggest restrictions with The Foundry are that your caterer must come from their list of caterers and the rentals must be handled by the caterer through Broadway Party Rentals (things like string lighting and such that Broadway Party Rentals do not provide are handled by you and can come from other rental companies). I do recommend getting a coordinator, though, as the venue being just a raw event space, there will be a lot of little items to coordinate as the big day approaches.

What can I say, it is a stunning venue. It was the perfect place for our wedding as we really wanted to avoid that cookie cutter, typical wedding. My now husband and I live in London and Angela & Lindsay were so accommodating, answering emails promptly and ensuring that when we were in NY we were able to pop by the space to see it or for meetings with our coordinator Tall & Small Events and caterer Bonbite. It seriously is a beautiful space, you definitely get what you pay for though and we rented the courtyard (for dinner), greenhouse (ceremony, bar & photobooth), main space (cocktail hour, dancing), terrace (cocktail hour) and duval terrace (photos - seriously stunning!). So as you can imagine the costs mounted pretty quickly but we wouldn't have changed a thing. Lindsay was also super helpful with recommendations as well - they have a great list of suppliers. Honestly, best day of our lives and everyone LOVED the space and commented how stunning it was and we really didn't have to do much to make it look good!

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!

It's a great pleasure to shuck oysters at the Foundry. An amazing venue with the best team running it.
