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. Read less

My husband and I recently got married at The Foundry and we cannot be happier with our choice of ceremony venue. We had an intimate wedding with 35 guests so The Albra Room was a perfect fit for what we wanted. The Foundry is our dream wedding venue. It is absolutely stunning and chic. We were so excited when we found out that our date was good to go! The staff at The Foundry are amazing. Lindsey and Angela went above and beyond what we expected. They answered our emails very promptly and gave us all the guidance we needed. We are so grateful for them. We hope to host more events there.

The Foundry is an outstanding venue. From the service, to the space... you can't go wrong. There are a lot of things to juggle when planning a wedding, but with The Foundry team, you always feel reassured. They are there to answer any questions you have at any time, they are super flexible throughout the planning process/day of and every vendor we used loves/raves about working with The Foundry. It is a premier venue located in NYC. I would recommend to anyone. We had a magical wedding and we wouldn't trade it for anything else in the world.

My husband and I both fell in love with The Foundry as soon as we stepped inside for the initial tour. Booking The Foundry was the first and most important choice that we made in our planning process, and also the easiest. On a regular day it is a beautiful and historic building, and on the night of our reception, it was absolutely magical! Our guests were awed as soon as they walked in the door, and we received many exclamations of - "WOW, your venue is amazing!"

The Foundry was the absolute perfect setting for my September 2016 Wedding! Angela and Lindsay and the Team at The Foundry were so pleasant to work with and made our day stress-free! The Foundry allowed us to host our entire Wedding, from ceremony to dinner to dance, in their multiple gorgeous spaces. We decided to host our dinner in the Courtyard, but honestly, would have been just as thrilled if weather turned bad and had to move it inside, as the inside main space and Greenhouse are just as gorgeous as out! This is a dream venue if you are looking for a completely customizable space. A big thank-you to The Foundry!

We just had our wedding at The Foundry this past weekend (8/7/16) and the whole experience was absolutely spectacular from start to finish. First of all, The Foundry itself is the most unique and gorgeous space we've ever been to. It has such a rich history and character, with so many awesome rustic touches that throwback to the days when it was actually a working foundry. I don't think that its humanly possible to take a bad picture there, as every single square inch has the most beautiful light and shadows, lines and curves, manmade and natural elements. The views (especially from the courtyard and rooftop terrace) are absolutely amazing, and it has the coolest rustic industrial vibe that doesn't need much decorating at all, but can be 100% customizable to suit your taste and style.

Working with the Foundry ladies, Lindsay and Angela, was nothing short of amazing from start to finish. They never failed to readily and quickly respond to emails, with questions big and small and silly, and through it all were incredibly kind, sweet, and patient. They were professional yet had a sense of humor and made us feel valued and respected. They helped to carry out, plan out, and execute our vision from start to finish, and we absolutely could not ask for a more beautiful and memorable day and experience.

All of our guests couldn't get over how gorgeous and unique the space was and seemed to thoroughly enjoy the whole experience. If we had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!!! Thank you so much for a truly unforgettable experience!

6 months after the event and we're still hearing from people that our wedding was the best they've ever been to! It was an absolutely perfect venue- we had about 115 guests and rented the main space and the greenhouse. It's just such an interesting space with so many great levels and textures- we barely had to do any decorating. It was pouring rain on our wedding day and once people got inside it didn't matter one bit- we had hoped to rent the outdoor patio but with all the greenery inside we didn't miss it at all. The staff was so nice and worked so well with the caterer to pull off the event flawlessly.
We were worried about guests traveling from outside New York being able to find the venue and travel there, but everyone just took a cab, and it just wasn't an issue at all.

The staff was so nice and worked so well with the caterer to pull off the event flawlessly.
We were worried about guests traveling from outside New York being able to find the venue and travel there, but everyone just took a cab, and it just wasn't an issue at all. 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!!!
