The Great Indoors-Outdoors
The Waterfront Sanctuary:
The Liberty Warehouse
This 150-year-old former liquor warehouse is perched on the Red Hook side of New York Harbor, offering Statue of Liberty views and a waterfront promenade that can host up to 300 for a ceremony and cocktails. The décor inside the recently refurbished bilevel building doesn’t have the postindustrial look that its exterior might suggest; rather, the lines are clean and the walls freshly painted, and loads of windows maintain the riverfront motif. Contingency-plan choices include the terraced Governor’s Room and the downstairs Harbor Room, the latter of which fits up to 225 for dinner and dancing. Catering is handled in-house, starting at $160 per person (minimum 125 guests). 260 Conover St., nr. Beard St., Red Hook; 347-987-3121; libertywarehouse.com.
