The Alice Austen House offers outdoor site rentals on the lawn in front of the house, a space that stands at the entrance to New York Harbor. With sweeping views reaching from the Statue of Liberty to Lower Manhattan to Coney Island, the site can afford everything from an intimate gathering to a spectacular wedding ceremony and reception.


Guests are welcome to use interior lavatory facilities. Prospective clients are invited to tour the facility with museum staff to better understand the site.


The capacity for events is 200 guests.
