This might be a little far for you…
But it’s in New Haven, CT with several hotels and taxis nearby. It’s an easy drive from NYC, and this venue is beautiful and not terribly expensive.
The Carousel at Lighthouse Point.
It is available between April 1st to November 1st. Here is the data that I got when I emailed the venue:
In April/May,September and October, events can begin at any time, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, events can begin after 5:00 pm, but set up can happen prior to that to allow a 5:00 pm start. We have only one event per day at the Carousel, so the day would be yours.
Caterers are your choice/cost, as is the bar service. Caterers will, in addition to food (and bar, if you choose) service, set up the Carousel according to your floor plan, and will break the facility down at the end of the event.
We provide the private building rental,tables/chairs, staff to run the carousel, an event supervisor, a security officer and you have the option of an attendant for the private 3-stall ladies room we use for special events, especially weddings! Carousel costs will depend on the details of theevent – number of guests, length of the event will vary the total cost. A wedding in 2014 will cost somewhere between 3200-3800. We confirm dates with a $500.00 non-refundable deposit.
