Brooklyn Grange was the perfect venue for our wedding. The rooftop farm is a phenomenal and unique space and boasts spectacular views of Manhattan. The team at Brooklyn Grange were communicative and professional throughout and worked hard to accommodate all of our desires for the day. Weeks later our guests are still talking about how much they loved the venue! Do not hesitate - book Brooklyn Grange today! More...

Awesome community garden on the top of an industrial building complex at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Incredible use of space, jaw dropping views of Manhattan, great institution in the neighborhood.

After looking at a few venues we decided on The Brooklyn Grange because it was far and away the most special and beautiful place we had ever seen. Because of this, our decoration budget was minimal. The fact that it’s a working farm that partners with some of the caterer to use actual produce from the location in the dishes was just so cool to be a part of. On top of that, the view is absolutely stunning. My wife and I are both fans of NYC water towers, so to be able to climb up one to take pictures was really the cherry on top.

We worked with Michele and Claire for coordinating and both of them were kind and patient. They provided a list of vendors (caterers, DJs, photographers, etc.) that are familiar with the space which really helped us narrow down our picks from the infinite pool of possibilities in NYC. They also put together a very helpful event at the venue where a bunch of different vendors (caterers, DJs, photographers, coordinators, photobooths, etc.) setup for taste testings, trials, and meetings. This really helped us fast track our vendor search and made for a great vendor/venue relationship with everyone we worked with.

Michele and Claire were incredibly professional and knowledgeable during our walkthrough and made sure no stone was left unturned when coming up with layout. Wind is a huge factor up there, but they knew exactly where and how everything should be situated. It was perfect! They also helped us organize a babysitter from a sister nonprofit, CityGrowers, to teach the kids about the farm, show the chickens, and really just allow the parents to relax and enjoy the party for a bit!

During and after the wedding one of the things we kept hearing from the guests was how amazing the space was. They really loved the view and we were so happy that we were able to give them this once in a lifetime kind of party!

Thank you so much Michele, Claire, and the rest of the team over at the Brooklyn Grange!!

Awesome find in the neighborhood!! Great veggies and way to support the positive local farm scene. It's totally unsuspected on the roof of this huge building on Northern Blvd. They have a few more Saturdays in October before they close for the season. More...

brooklyn grange is amazing.
its a one of a kind venue and exactly what we were looking for.
we did not want a traditional banquet hall wedding.
we fell in love with brooklyn grange.
not only because its a rooftop farm (so unique) but also because of their sustainability practices.
everyone was so nice and accommodating leading up to the day of the wedding.
do note that because of the unique style of the venue, they have a preferred vendor list. we choose all our vendors from their list except the photographer, and every single one of the vendors were fantastic. it was helpful that they have been used at the venue before and knew all the logistics.
the weather was perfect during our day, and everyone at the grange was so responsive and helpful.
the price for the venue is definitely more expensive than others, but in the end, we wouldn't have changed a thing.

If I could have a wedding at Brooklyn Grange every year I would! This venue is contagiously magical and is one of the most beautiful places in the entire city. Working with Michele, Claire and Chelsea was an absolute joy. The entire team buzzes with positivity, and everyone was so responsive, thorough, helpful, and relaxed throughout our planning. They worked seamlessly with our other vendors which made our wedding day an absolute breeze. Our friends and family are still talking about their time at Brooklyn Grange, it was definitely a special night and one to remember. More...

Getting married The Brooklyn Grange was beyond what we ever could have imagined. Every phase of the process was efficient, easy-going, and supportive. They celebrated our creative vision for the night, while sharing knowledge from their vast experience to help us foresee the things our creative minds overlooked. From the broad stroke logistics to the tiniest details, they made it easy, and let us focus on what was important: each other.

Community is embedded in every element of The Grange. Even as newcomers (or clients) we felt immediately a part of the community. This energy of togetherness is perfect for a wedding, and facilitated a beautiful experience for all of us. We truly could not be happier with how everything turned out. The lush farm, the stunning views, the giddiness of walking out onto that roof for the first time…it’s truly an experience everyone will remember and savor.

Thank you so much for everything!

Brooklyn Grange is just spectacular. While it is an investment, our reception, full of jaded-NYC folk, were BLOWN AWAY. The space is just spectacular, and the team is wonderful - totally willing to go the extra mile and genuinely good people to boot. If you're going to meet new people on your wedding day, count on Brooklyn Grange to provide good ones. More...

Choosing the Brooklyn Grange as our wedding venue was one of the best decisions we made during our whole planning process. The staff is the friendliest group of people and they helped out every single step of the way, making sure that our needs came first. They also made sure our guests were comfortable on the rooftop during our wedding (even providing blankets when it got a bit chilly after sundown). Not to mention all the greenery makes for the perfect wild and urban backdrop. Would highly recommend! More...

We celebrated John and Nora’s wedding in this special rooftop farm venue. With sunflowers, kale, baby eggplant growing around, we stood between the rows on burlap, the bride and groom under an archway of greenery with the New York skyline in view,..... just enchanting. We had farm fresh dinner under a covered area followed by a great DJ with lots of good dancing. There is plenty of room for a dessert table and open bar. The staff is very efficient and conscientious. You do need to walk down a flight of stairs to the restrooms. This is a very special venue. Like this post if it is helpful to you. More...

I just planned a team building event for a group of co-workers at the Brooklyn Grange and we all couldn't have been happier with the results! Michele, their event coordinator, was wonderful to work with. She was so friendly and so responsive! We did the natural indigo dying workshop and EVERYONE loved it - men and women alike. The instructor was awesome. We didn't get to visit the farm because it was the middle of winter, but their indoor space is so lovely and calming. Honestly, if you have a chance to do one of their workshops or just visit, you should. It's an awesome way to spend a few hours of your day! Highly recommend! I can't wait to go back and visit the farm in warmer months! More...

The Brooklyn Grange went above and beyond to help accommodate us and our guests leading up to the wedding and the day of. If we had to do it all over again, we would go with the Grange over and over again! We are 1000% happy we had our wedding here, the wedding was incredible. Our family and guests remarked it was the best wedding they've ever been to. The Grange perfectly meshed with our personal tastes and the crew made all our ideas a reality. As an Architect I saw a site that only needed a few extra items here and there to make it unique to us, and it really came through. More...

Brooklyn Grange is the ultimate hidden gem and was the perfect venue for our wedding. Brooklyn Grange's beauty lies in it's breathtaking greenery and offers the best views of the city. Our guests, mostly from out of town, were treated with an unforgettable experience. Our Friday brunch wedding, which included two separate ceremonies, could not have been executed without the help of the Brooklyn Grange staff. They were kind, generous, organized, professional and provided top notch service every step of the way. Thank you Brooklyn Grange for making our day unforgettable for us and loved ones!

Cute rooftop urban farming! It's so amazing to see that these folks are able to grow so many things in the middle of New York! Don't be fooled by the name Brooklyn...it's actually located in LIC, Queens.You can enter through the lobby and take the elevator up to the roof. There, you'll be amazed with sites of the city and tons of greenery around you. I spotted baby kale, tons of peppers, flowers, carrots, and plenty more. It spans the whole roof and you could spend a while looking at everything and packing yourself a picnic for the benches.There's even a farmer's market, where they sell the veggies they grow right there! How neat! More...

I am a nature lover who has lived in NYC and Brooklyn for nearly 30 years. I was floored by this place. I attended a wedding which was a perfect spot for it(though it did get super windy), but the fact that there is land like this being cultivated on a roof top in Brooklyn is pretty incredible. Not to mention the views are fantastic! I'm looking for my next excuse to go back and bring friends! More...

Came here with some co-workers for a super unique afternoon of education and bee puns.Brooklyn Grange Farm is the largest rooftop farm in the world, which is super cool considering it's in a city where space is hard to come by.The farm is located in the Navy Yard, which is a bit hard to navigate, but once you get your bearings, it's pretty straightforward. We took the elevator to the roof, which has amazing views of the NYC skyline (they do weddings and events up there as well). After taking some photos, Chase the director taught us all about bee colonies, honey production, dispelled some bee myths, and walked us through a brief history of NYC beekeeping.Afterward, he showed us the hive and let us try honey straight from the comb. It was delicious!Then we went downstairs and Anastasia talked us through the honey production process, the seasonal lives of bee colonies, and what causes differences in the taste of different honeys. And of course, we did a honey tasting!They also sell some cool merch. I picked up a bottle of their small batch hot sauce.Big thanks to Brooklyn Grange for having us and providing us with a newfound appreciation of our fuzzy little buddies! More...

The historic perspective is better served to you, the reader, directly from the website itself as there is much to learn.Here is my experience.Entering through the coffee shop, bad -- entering through the lobby, good. It'll make your little adventure begin on a higher note -- reasons are many, just please take my word for it.Six floors up and ten paces ahead, your faced with your first and only decision. Shall we take a right, or shall we take a left? When you don't know where you are going, it really doesn't matter which way you choose.The thick dry straw that cushion your walk keeps the dirt from becoming part of your wardrobe an unwanted souviner not tracked home. Staying on the main thorofare and avoiding non guided excursions towards the roofs edges is a good plan, if you do feel the need to venture, keep watch where your planting your feet. Flower beds sit snug in close proximity to the ground and are closely huddled together leaving them exposed for damage from a slight of step.The Greens family is fully represented, a Ware Rabbits dream come true, I gravitated immediately to the leeks, how I love them so. We purchased many items from the farmstand tgat had little or nothing to do with greens. Sourdough bread, hot sauce, honey, carrots and more all came home with me and will all work their way on to my Sunday menu. More...

If you have no interest in gardening, or sustainable farming, a visit here will take you all of five minutes. If you're like me, and get thrills from seeing row after row of assorted, healthy vegetables and flowerbeds, a visit to this roof top garden will be worth your time. When you visit this organic rooftop farm, you will also be amazed by how large it is and how beautiful the views of Manhattan and LIC are. At one end, there's a humongous wooden table inviting you to sit and snack on the produce sold from their little produce market. Honey, from the two beehives here, wasn't available at the time but I snagged some sweet baby carrots and edible flowers. Bakers, if you want to candy your own flowers, get them here(FYI, eat the peppery nasturtium blooms and decorate with the pansies unless you like sweet and very spicy  blooms on your cakes and cupcakes). You won't find cheap produce here but this is organically grown produce that is ever so fresh. Open house is every Saturday until October. I saw a group of people hanging at one end and discovered they give tours that are sold online. They do host dinners I was told, and those events sell out fast. And on your way out, don't forget to spend some time looking at the pics of old New York in the lobby of the building. They'll have you searching for the Superman capes of the featured steelworkers. I got vertigo just pondering about their balls. More...

Great spot to be immersed in garden goods with a view of the Manhattan skyline. Their produce looks fantastic, and if you come on Saturdays between 11am and 4pm, you can enter for free (open house). Tours are also available for $10, if you wish to know more about the who, when, what and how. Make sure you get out on the northern side of 36 St. R train station, and you'll be 1 block away from the entrance. Leave your name on the attendance boom and take the elevator to the rooftop. A great place to hang out. Benches and wooden tables available. More...

Brooklyn Grange installed two absolutely beautiful green walls in Fordham's business schools at Rose Hill and Lincoln Center. Aside from the gorgeous design, their customer service proved exceptional. They visit the walls twice after installation to make sure everything is going well, provide watering cans, and respond promptly and clearly to all questions and concerns. Brooklyn Grange goes above and beyond! More...

This is a lovely rooftop farm in LIC/ Astoria, Queens. It was my first time going there but won't be my last. They have all the fresh produce. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I went on the last weekend they are open to public and I wished I had know that earlier. The view up there is great and it would be a nice summer hangout with family and friends.

Are we in an office building? Is there really a farm up there? Yes and Yes. This farm is located only a block away from the train station in a fairly industrial area of LIC, on the rooftop of what seems to be a management company building.Though some of the crops were a bit dried out from overexposure of the sun, the farmers make good use of the limited space and sell their produce on Saturdays (a bit on the pricey side, but if you like supporting local businesses, this is a nice way to do it) and what is not to love about the sweeping views of Manhattan, just across the water? I am a sucker for all things "hidden in plain sight" and Brooklyn Grange has definitely won me over. Be sure to visit before they close for the season (Oct. 24th). More...

An urban farm in the rooftop of an LIC building! I've been meaning to visit their market since I found out about it after my first visit to COFFEED. I finally did this summer and what a wonderful thing to have in the city! Come visit them on Saturdays when the market is open and you can walk around freely in the farm. I recommend getting coffee and a snack from downstairs to take it up to the roof and enjoy in view of the city and of this farm. And of course, seasonal produce can be bought here just like other farmers markets. The selection is just limited in comparison. They also have a CSA of you're interested. More...

Attended the Veggiepalooza event as I first time visitor. The rooftop garden is awesome and the long length of dining table was spectacular. Serving freshly grown veggies from the garden the local chef's delivered amazingly fresh and delicious food. {I wanna do that thing you do when you kiss your fingers and then release them in a bursting scrumptious gesture]. They really served it up. Garden fresh cocktails, hooch with pickle backs and 5 courses served by some of the finest chefs from Faro, Marlow and Sons Lafayette,The Pickle shack and Tipsy Parson. They were especially accommodating to my friends food allergies and we shared our table and meal with some terrific folks. The service, view, food, company, music and vibe was really something special. More...

This was such a fascinating place. Went there for one of heir open house hours on a Saturday morning with a friend. The rooftop farm has a lot of cool things. It has chickens, a beehive, kale, sunflowers. They were selling their own fruits and vegetables with a section for ugly veggies. Its a very family friendly place as they had cheese making session with the young'uns where they showed them hownti make goat cheese. That was fun, even though I was not a kid. They also had coloring books and the tour guides/instructors/activity leaders were very friendly.Its a for profit farm who use drip irrigation. Apparently they have a lot of bird issues of eating their crops. It was deifinitley a fun place to check out. More...

An impressive urban rooftop farm run by a passionate and knowledgeable group of individuals. Their effort is an admirable one. I am considering enlisting as a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) member next year to subscribe to their growing-season produce (especially the coveted heirloom tomatoes). If you haven't already, make a visit to see what they're about and visit their star chicken, Beaker. More...
