A Charitable Wedding & Mitzvah Venue in NYC

New York City has an eclectic and varied number of event spaces for Jewish weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, parties and corporate events. Our modern city is home to the hottest trend-setting architecture and fashion, so we were delighted to discover The Prince George Ballroom. Located in the FlatIron District in Manhattan and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, The Prince George Ballroom is a feast for the eyes with its Beaux Arts style and Neo-Renaissance flourishes. In the spirit of tzedakah (charity), 100% of its net revenue is used for NYC outreach programs to help the homeless and other vulnerable New Yorkers.
