When you hear "Chelsea Piers," you probably think of the waterfront complex's driving range, ice-skating rink, bowling alley, health club, spa, microbrewery…we could go on and on. But did you know that the sports-and-entertainment haven is also home to an event space that has one of the City's best views of the Hudson River? With its prime location off the western edge of Manhattan, The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers is a prominent place for a sunset ceremony—and the scene is just as picturesque for a daytime wedding. Ample windows and an all-season terrace, on which you can savor cocktails and meals, are sure to make waves with your family and friends. If you'd rather get married along the East River, be sure to see two wonderful waterside venues: Water's Edge, in Long Island City, and The Water Club, in Kips Bay.
