If you’re planning an event in New York City, why not make the most of it by finding a place that offers an amazing view? There are plenty of views from to choose in the city, from Central Park to the Hudson River, but if you really want to make a lasting impact, the most spectacular views involve the Manhattan skyline. Looking for an event that’s as emotionally impactful as it is visually stunning? You can’t go wrong with Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
Some people may not even be aware that this property, a national monument under supervision by the National Parks Service, is available for private events. In fact, a wide variety of events have been held at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Just about any event can take place on the islands after business hours, as long as it’s been approved by the National Park Service. So far, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty have hosted Fundraisers, Corporate Dinners, Company Outings, Black-Tie Affairs, Wedding Ceremonies, Wedding Receptions, Concerts and Product Launches.
Guests of the islands begin enjoying the view on the ferry ride over. If the event is being held at the Statue of Liberty, dinner under the stars offers a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. On Ellis Island, the breathtaking views of the skyline can be seen from inside or outside the expansive, stunning venue. Both islands have observation areas that afford amazing views of lower Manhattan and the harbor. As the night draws to a close, you can enhance your view even further with a spectacular private fireworks show.
