Brooklyn Grange, Flushing Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, United States
The Brooklyn Grange has got to be one of NYC’s most jaw dropping + unique venues. A working rooftop urban farm with 380 degrees views of both the Manhattan skyline + Brooklyn + Queens. Although magical at any time of day, try + have your event coincide with sunset so that your guest can enjoy a cocktail while watching the city lights come alive. It’s a truly spectacular scene.
Because the whole venue is under the sky, a good tent is necessary for both shade from the intense sun + incase of inclement weather. Also beware that since it’s a working farm with live crops, guests need to be careful about where they walk so as to not step on seedlings etc. Though, this is a small price to pay for the full experience that this one of a kind organic fortress has to offer.
One cool feature is that if your event has children present, one of the grange’s farmers can give them an educational farm tour including a visit to the chicken coop + an explanation of the rooftops beekeeping operation + beehives.
From Farm To Table
Because it’s a farm the opportunities are endless for utilizing the produce in feeding your guests. The farm can also recommend caterers whose menus incorporate local, sustainably raised products. Win/win. Wow your guests + throw the party on NYC’s best rooftop!
