Of the ones you listed I LOVE Gotham Hall. It is stunning on the inside and not as much of a pain transportation wise as the midtown venues. Cipriani 42 is spectacular but you should check the UN schedule and know that if Trump happens to be in town that part of 42nd street will be in gridlock. I’m not a huge fan of the Ziegfeld. With the new renovation it feels very cavernous and soulless. There’s no character there. Have you looked at the Cipriani on Wall Street? I know someone who is kosher who got married at the Museum of Finance downtown that was stunning but don’t know specifics on caterer.

Plus it’s already almost June so a November wedding is a tight turnaround for a wedding of this scale (in terms of booking the venue, finding vendors with availability). Also it’s NYC so there are a zillion other events (not just weddings) you’re competing with. You should book your venue within the next two weeks.
