We had our October 21st Wedding at The Green Building and we could not have been happier! Quin Johnson was beyond helpful in planning and a true pleasure to work with. She made everything so easy for us!
The space is just gorgeous. We had our ceremony and reception inside. The ceremony could not have been more romantic. We used the front wall (the one with the kitchen entrance) and had a light wall hung. The lights combined with the rustic charm of the space was breathtaking. Our cocktail hour was in the outdoor space which looked fantastic with the lights strung along the top. The indoor space was just the perfect size for our reception of 135 seated. We did banquet style tables and still had plenty of room for a dance floor.
I cannot even begin to count the number of compliments we received on how beautiful our venue was. It is truly a magical space.

The Green Building had just the atmosphere my husband and I wanted for our wedding and reception of 150 guests. It has an old-world industrial Brooklyn feel with exposed brick and wood beams. The columnless room allows for a flexible floor plan; the high ceiling makes the room voluminous. The details are simple and give a taste of an era gone by with elegant chandeliers and a small retro speakeasy lounge for a cozy private spot. I fell in love with the space.
Ours was a summer afternoon wedding and the soft light that filtered through the high windows was a lovely touch. We chose a simple decor but the space could easily support more dressing up.
Everyone at The Green Building was helpful, especially Brooke who was excellent at communicating and offering practical options to consider. We were in very good hands. It was a wonderful event- everyone loved The Green Building. I highly recommend this space for weddings or other events.

We got married last weekend and we had our reception at the Green Building. Not only was the reception a fantastic affair but the Green Building was amazing. We wanted an urban chic wedding with a vintage flare. The Green Building staff helped us to make our vision come true and our friends and family were more than impressed with the space. I highly recommend the Green Building and Quin, Meghan and Brooke were more than helpful to answer questions, give recommendations and provide solutions to any challenges. If you are looking for a great space at a reasonable price consider this venue. We did and we couldn't be happier.

I can't say enough about the Green Building.

The raw space is gorgeous.

The staff is SO helpful. Especially our day-of-coordinator, Quin. SHE EARNED HER MONEY!! Our wedding was very much an event complete with staged dances and musical numbers. She coordinated all our vendors and had everyone on a timeline that Quin adjusted on the spot to accommodate the flow of the wedding. Everything went off with out a hitch. We could never have done it with out her.

We held our wedding at the green building and it turned out fantastic. The main space is 2 stories and open to the rafters with exposed structural elements. I'm guessing it was built in the late 19th or early 20th century, so it has a nice industrial charm. There is also a small fully decorated lounge reminiscent of a speakeasy, which is great for pre-event preparations and photos.

The booking manager and house manager were professional, accessible and easy to deal with, and made the business side of the transaction pain-free. Also you get the space for 24 hours which gives you ample time to set up the space to your liking and enjoy it to the fullest. Compared to other venues of a similar nature the green building was far and away the best value.

This makes it ideal for someone who wants to be creative and design her own event. The house can provide bar packages or you can organize it yourself. The flexibility to manage your own event providers is a nice plus, but they do have preferred vendors who we used and we would also recommend to keep it simple.

My now-husband and I found The Green Building 14 months before our wedding, and we completely fell in love with it! It's more hands-on, as a raw space, but stunningly beautiful and so easy to work with. They have a fantastic list of preferred vendors, and Susan, who we worked with, was a dream. They were also incredibly helpful with a last-minute conflict, and helped us extend the length of our reception by an hour. Highly, highly recommend!

The Green Building is an amazing location to get married! It was absolutely stunning and all of our guests were blown away at how beautiful the location was. The venue is NOT CHEAP! so if you are looking for a reasonably priced location to get married in NYC - this is not it. You are paying basically for a blank palette, which was exactly what my husband and I were looking for, but can definitely make sticking to a budget a little harder. Despite the cost, we are really happy that we were married at the Green Building. Meghan, our wedding coordinator was great, and quickly adapted to everything after our previous coordinator left the Green Building. All in all, it was beautiful and I cannot wait to see how the pictures look in that beautiful setting!

We just had our May 2014 wedding at The Green Building and it was absolutely perfect! The team, especially Quin, was so great and easy to work with and they made planning so enjoyable for us. They were so flexible to accommodate our needs and all of our guests commented on how unique and beautiful the building and outdoor space were and how it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. We would definitely recommend The Green Building for a wedding or any other event!

(And though we didn't use it, the space across the street - 501 Union - is gorgeous and also worth checking out!)
