Updated: Jun 16



Are you planning a Brooklyn or Queens wedding and want to take advantage of the AMAZING Manhattan skyline views?


Or maybe you love the outdoors and want to add a little BEAUTY to your wedding ceremony...

Can we be honest? NYC can be downright ugly and dirty! So why not take advantage of some of the most beautiful CITY VIEWS in the world?


I saw these views firsthand while DJing over 300 weddings in the New York City area.


Here are 5 NYC wedding venues with great views:


  1. The William Vale

  2. Liberty Warehouse

  3. W Loft

  4. The Bordone

  5. Greenpoint Loft

The William Vale


There is one main reason couples have a wedding at the William Vale. For the views from their 23rd floor rooftop.


When your photographer captures you standing on the rooftop, it looks like you are floating in the clouds.


Only your ceremony and cocktail hour will take place on the rooftop. They have other spaces for your reception such as a ballroom and a large outdoor terrace on the fourth floor rooftop.

Liberty Warehouse


This venue has boasts a unique view. That of the Statue of Liberty! There is no other NYC wedding venue that has better views of it.


Located on a pier in Red Hook, Brooklyn, there are unobstructed views of the Statue of Liberty, passing boats, and the Manhattan skyline.


Some couples from outside the city like this venue because it has a more outer-borough feel and is less trendy or "hipster" than the other venues on this list.

W Loft


The W Loft is a smaller venue that has amazing views inside and out! Outside, there is a nice rooftop patio where you can have your wedding ceremony and cocktail hours.


Inside, the room is long and a bit narrow. On each side there is a wall of windows with nice views.


On one side you have Manhattan Skyline views. On the other, there are Brooklyn city views. On the rooftop terrace? More skyline views.


The W Loft is located in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Many cool hotels and bars are just a short walk away.

The Bordone


The Bordone has beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline and of the Queensboro Bridge. It is similar in layout to W Loft, but bigger.


Inside there is a medium sized room connected to a huge rooftop balcony. Upstairs there is a smaller space with another balcony.


You can have your ceremony and cocktail hour outside on the incredible patio. Then head inside for dinner and dancing.


It is located in Long Island City, Queens in a quiet area with better parking than others. It is a block away from the large Ravel hotel.

Greenpoint Loft


The Greenpoint Loft is a large industrial space in a former rope factory. Its outdoor balcony boasts beautiful Manhattan skyline and river views.


The Greenpoint Loft has two floors. Through the main space windows you can see the NYC skyline - especially once it gets dark.


Upstairs there is a smaller space which leads to a large outdoor balcony. This is where you get some great views.


Most couples have all parts of their wedding downstairs - except for the cocktail hour. But sometimes during dancing guests sneak away to take a photo on the gorgeous balcony.


The Greenpoint Loft is located in popular Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It is nearby great hotels, bars and funky shops.
