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 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 13 years ago in 2001. It is the only foundry in the area still standing today. Read less

I truly cannot say enough good things about the Foundry! It is a truly special place, with not only beautiful structure but the ability to create the exact wedding of your dreams. The space is completely raw, so if you are up to task all the details of your wedding can be completely customized to your vision. At first, the idea of having to bring in everything was overwhelming but I am so happy we did because every last detail was chosen by my husband and myself. It was such a true representation of us and what we wanted. We rented the main space, courtyard, greenhouse, and the roof for photos. Each space was well worth the added costs and just so beautiful. All of my guests were in awe of the Foundry and had never seen anything quite like it.
Working with the Foundry team was so easy and great. They are all experts in what they do and so helpful. We worked with Angela the most, and she was so helpful. At our wedding you would have never known she was there – but she was very easy to reach when we needed her and super quick to help! She worked very closely with out caterer to ensure my husband and I did not have to worry about anything. We were able to enjoy our day and for that I am truly grateful.
The Foundry was the first venue we looked at and I instantly fell in love. I am so happy we chose it – such a stunning, special place to hold such a special day.

A BIG thank you to Angela and the Foundry for helping us create our dream wedding! The Foundry is a one of a kind space and a true gem. It is a raw space rental, so we were able to customize our wedding to make it very "us." We rented the main space and the terrace for our September 2014 wedding. With approximately 115 guests the main space was very comfortable for dinner and dancing (even Greek dancing!). We used the terrace for cocktail hour - which the guests loved, they took photos of the skyline and all the lush plantings. If my budget permitted, I would have loved to rent the greenhouse too - it is a really cool indoor space adjacent to the main room.

Working with Angela was great. She was extremely kind, calm, and professional. She worked with us along the way to make our vision a reality. When the big day came, we barely knew she was there, but she was coordinating with our DOC and making sure everything ran smoothly. At the end of the day my husband and I were extremely happy - we actually got to enjoy our own wedding!

The location of the Foundry is actually quite convenient. There are several hotels nearby - we had guests stay at the Hotel Z (two blocks away). It's about a 10 minute walk from Queensboro Plaza so our local guests had access to public transit. For guests that drove, there was plenty of onstreet parking available. Western Queens is known for its food options especially Astoria, so we were able to find a local caterer that did Greek food - which was phenomenal. Our guests also enjoyed their weekend in the Astoria/LIC area - lots of great and unique restaurants and cool neighborhoods - also convenient to get to Manhattan.

I highly recommend the Foundry - best wedding venue in the NYC area! Thank you!!!

The Foundry has to be one of the most STUNNING backdrops to exchange vows in NYC. The contrast between industrial beams and rustic brick walls that are crawling with lush ivy made it the perfect backdrop for our shabby chic wedding.

We decided to have a small boutique ceremony in The Greenhouse section of the Foundry, which in our opinion is the prettiest part of the building. As the backdrop is SOO GORGEOUS on its own, we didn’t need to add much decoration, so that also helped us with our floral budget.

Other than the fact that the building is absolutely beautiful and historic…the main reason we picked this venue was because of the symbolism it holds for my husband and I. For one, we decided to get married on June 21st, the Summer Solstice and the longest day of sunlight in the northern hemisphere. We picked our date first, and then our venue. Getting married inside the Greenhouse let us capture the sun’s energy on this special day, while also keeping everyone cool and protecting against the elements outside just in case. The Foundry was also once used as an actual Steel Foundry to manufacture parts that were used in building the foundations for NYC – one of our greatest loves. As such, we felt this was also a great place to start building the foundations of our marriage and life together.

With regards to staff…a huge THANK YOU to Julie and Angela and the rest of the team at the Foundry for accommodating us for an early morning ceremony. They were not only professional and responsive to all of our questions and emails, they were also such a pleasure to work with and made sure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. We really felt we were in good hands.

I would definitely recommend The Foundry if you are looking to get married in the NYC area and want an ultra-chic location to celebrate your special day.

After looking at several other locations in the area, I told my husband I wanted to show him The Foundry but that I knew I'd fall in love with it immediately. We didn't have an appointment to view it but ended up walking in on a Sunday while another couple was being shown around.
Gina and Julie were extremely accommodating, even though we hadn't had an appointment.

Fortunately, my husband fell in love with it and didn't care about the price tag. After all, it is the only time we will ever get married, why wouldn't we want to go all out? =P

We knew we would be having an intimate wedding, and the space was just perfect.
Being able to bring in our own vendors and having the ability to pretty much decorate it the way we want, having a gorgeous raw space as opposed to a typical catering hall, allowed us to do just that.

Our day of, on site coordinator, Angela, was the friendliest and most reassuring person we could have asked for. Gina and Julie were also the nicest and professional throughout our whole planning process. From meeting us on site to go over layout, to quickly responding to my crazy emails, the team at The Foundry was most accommodating.
We appreciated every second of it!

The Foundry was the perfect location for our wedding of 75 people. The style is both rustic and urban, perfect for a New York wedding. The different rooms, the terrace, and the courtyard (which we didn't use), allow you to customize the wedding activities as you wish. We had the ceremony in the greenhouse, with ivy covered walls, then moved to the terrace for cocktails, with views of the city and the green courtyard, and then back inside for dinner and dancing in the main room and the greenhouse.

All of our guests were really impressed with the space. We loved the mix of bright open spaces with the coziness of the alcoves and the red brick walls.

The staff was friendly, professional, and helpful from the very beginning of booking the location through the night of the wedding. The location provided a doorman and a location manager who were instrumental in making the wedding run smoothly.

We only visited one venue and immediately knew it was "the one" for us. I loved that it blends a raw industrial city vibe with outdoor garden party as climbing ivy covers nearly all the walls of the Foundry, both inside and out. We were so smitten with the entire venue that we ended up using three of their available spaces. We had our ceremony in the Greenhouse which has a spa-like feel with its delicate ivy on the light brick walls, beautiful sunlight through the skylight and window, and a quietly bubbling fountain decorated with candles. We had our cocktail hour on the Terrace and where everyone got to admire the view of NYC, which is what makes the Queens location so special. We had dinner and dancing inside the Foundry's main space which flowed perfectly and needs little decoration since it is already so beautiful. Our guests were all very excited because that was the space most of them recognized from the various TV shows on which The Foundry has been featured.
The Foundry's staff has a great relationship with our wedding planners (Exquisite Affairs Productions) and our caterer (Marcey Brownstein's Leslie Russell) so our event ran really smoothly. Angela, our coordinator for the Foundry, was warm and bubbly and quickly fixed the only blooper that happened all day (I completely forgot to bring my iPod with the pre-ceremony playlist, she grabbed my iPhone, downloaded the playlist and got it running before anyone even realized that there was no music playing!). The Foundry was spotlessly clean before our wedding began and was kept clean throughout.
For couples who are looking for an alternative to a more standard wedding venue, the Foundry is a perfect choice. Besides, any venue that has a cute dog named "Waffles" for a CEO has to be good.

We only visited one venue and immediately knew it was "the one" for us. I loved that it blends a raw industrial city vibe with outdoor garden party as climbing ivy covers nearly all the walls of the Foundry, both inside and out.

The Foundry was my dream venue and their staff was a pleasure to work with. As an interior designer, I loved the architectural features of the Foundry--brick, skylights, concrete--no BS. All this place needs is candles and flowers and we had an incredibly beautiful ceremony, dinner and reception there. Our wedding day was rainy at times but it didn't matter since we tented the courtyard and everything else was inside. It put me at ease to know that rain wouldn't inhibit anything about our day but also know that we wouldn't feel like we were in some stuffy banquet hall. It is a truly gorgeous space and I recommend you to get married there if you are as lucky as I am! We had 112 people and it was a perfect number but we could have had a few more since dinner was in the courtyard.

We had visited numerous other venues prior to our tour of the Foundry and they all had they charms and seemed like potential contenders. Our plan to weigh to pros and cons and eventually settle on one of these places completely went out the window, however, the moment we walked into the Foundry. Without a word between the two of us, we instantly knew this was the perfect venue for our day, capturing exactly the feeling we were going for, and a truly breathtaking space in which to bring our wedding to life. Old stone; exposed metal work; a gorgeous back courtyard; and all that ivy! All this set with a backdrop view of Manhattan and the Queensboro bridge and some of the nicest, most efficient, most accommodating staff you can imagine (indeed, we liked Jose so much that we hired him as a day-of wedding planner).

Two months after our wedding and our family and friends are still raving about how much fun they had at the wedding. Our ceremony was in the main space and then we went to greenhouse for cocktail hour. Since the Foundry is so different we were able to have a very different wedding, we had free style dining and no assigned seating which allowed guest to enjoy the Foundry. My husband and I were able to enjoy our family and friends and everyone danced all night. As a wedding present, my sister booked a cigar roller which was a big hit. The cigar roller also made our guest take advantage of the terrace that over-looked Manhattan. Our wedding was amazing and so much fun, everything was so different and the space so beautiful....exactly what I wanted. Julie was our main contact from the Foundry, she showed us the space and kept in constant contact with us throughout the process. The day of the wedding our Foundry host was Angela, she was really excited and had just a great positive attitude. There were two doormen, and unfortunately we didn't catch their names; but our guest said very nice things about the doormen. Julie was very clear throughout the process that is raw space, I priced caters and rentals for this space before I even booked, which gave us a better idea if it was within budget...for us it was so worth it.
