Rentals and Photoshoots

Holding your event at the Alice Austen House gardens is an opportunity to participate in New York City history.

The historic site offers outdoor rentals for wedding ceremonies and filming opportunities with sweeping vistas of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. With romantic period gardens, a landmarked Victorian Cottage, and an expansive waterfront view of the New York harbor the Alice Austen House offers a unique backdrop for your wedding ceremony or photo/film shoot. Rentals are currently available for wedding ceremonies only, corporate retreats and film and photoshoots and this historic New York location is the perfect venue for these occasions.

Rental fees for wedding ceremonies are $500/hr and include a site visit and consultation with our rentals staff and administrative fees.  

The capacity for outdoor ceremonies and indoor corporate retreats are subject to space requirements and gathering size guidelines.

Photo permits are required for any video or photoshoots on the grounds at a flat rate of $75 for still photography and hourly rate of $300 for video.



“From the outside, this charming cottage looks like any other late 17th-century Dutch Colonial House. Step inside, and you’ll soon discover it was the home base for one of New York’s most celebrated female photographers.”
