Though there might be locations in New York that are as breathtaking as the Alice Austen House, there is none more spectacular. The panoramic view, stretching from the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan to the Verrazano Bridge, is the ideal backdrop for events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, communions, or bar mitzvahs. We host intimate cocktail parties, festive barbeques, and extravagant dinner dances.  Furthermore, the Austen House is an ideal place for a meeting away from the office.


The Austen House lets you plan and design your event to fit your needs.  We rent you the site, and you create your event.  We have caterers, etc, that we often work with, but you are free to bring in your own.


Since every event we do at the house is unique, we find it best to discuss your plans over the phone so we can answer all your questions.  Please email for more information or call 718-816-4506 x10.
