I’m looking for a place to have a big casual bbq for about 50 – 100 people in the 5 boroughs to celebrate my marriage with family and friends after my sort-of elopement out of state. Maybe even Long Island if need be. Can anyone recommend a space? I’m finding it surprisingly difficult! On a very tight budget, and most places I’m finding have about a $3500 site rental fee (queens county farm with tent, Brooking ethical culture, etc).

Have you looked into Brooklyn Bridge Park? I don’t know too much about space rental there, but that might be an option. Also, you might want to look into Westchester parks – there are some on the water that are nice, and I think you can rent the outdoor space. If I come across anything else, I’ll hop back here and let you know.

@hermitcrab: Thanks so much – I didn’t consider Westchester parks. And here I am trying to rent out someone’s house for the day! I’ll look into those parks now. 🙂
