The Foundry

Long Island City is known for its independent galleries and studio spaces, along with arts institutions like MoMA PS1, the Fisher Landau Center for Art and the Noguchi Museum. The Foundry, a 19th-century red-brick building that has been converted into a standalone event space, has a raw industrial design that perfectly complements the artistic aesthetic of the neighborhood. (The space has been featured in a variety of films and television programs, including Girls and 30 Rock.) The entire open-plan facility is available for events of up to 180 attendees. The ivy-lined Greenhouse; the petite Pool Room with its regulation billiards table; the all-white Albra Room, which opens onto the 1,500-square-foot industrial kitchen; and the Foundry’s terrace, which provides spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline and Queensboro Bridge—each can be rented as a standalone space.
