I’ve been to the angel Orensanz site for a work party..definitely nice but I believe its something ridiculous for a site fee like $15 or $20K

Yeah, Angel Orensanz is GORGEOUS (we visited it), but the price is insane.  We also visited the Prince George Ballroom and the main room is beautiful, like really unique and stunning, and quite reasonable in price, but only holds about 40 people.  The overflow space is disconnected and pretty plain, which we didn’t like.  So it works really well for a very small wedding, but wasn’t quite our cup of tea since we’re having just over 40 (like maybe 50-60).

Most of the places we looked at were run by non-profits because I wanted them to be tax-deductible (lol), so I’ll have to go back and look at my list again!

You can rent out any of the zoos (central park, bronx, prospect park, or queens) or the aquarium from the wildlife conservation society http://www.wcs.org

I have heard its like $7500 (don’t quote me on it!!) and 100% goes to the wildlife conservation society.

I think tables and chairs and possibly centerpieces are included….

@MrsFalcon: Don’t know if Housing Works is in the running, but I came across these photos today of a wedding in the bookstore and thought you might like to see them.

Adam and Shireen: Hitched!
