Park Slope's unique layout offers a variety of arrangements from intimate weddings for 100, to cocktail-style events for 250 +.
Built in 1906, this Classical Revival building is a marvel of early twentieth-century elegance. A vaulted, stained-glass ceiling adorns in the upper mezzanine and is viewable from the first floor and each wing contains a pair of tiled fireplaces crafted by Grueby Faience Company of Revere Massachusetts. Each glazed, tiled fireplace is adorned with friezes reclaimed from ancient and unknown New York buildings. The Children’s Wing frieze depicts a procession of youth making music and dancing, while the Adult Wing’s frieze portrays a robed choir of young men performing. Both fireplaces are decorative and feature brass hoods and andirons, and can be decorated with LED pillar candles, and florals.
The Park Slope Library’s first floor affords a total of 3,200 square feet that encompasses its reception area and both the Children’s and Adult’s wings. The information desk is easily converted to a centralized bar while information counters double as food stations. The Quiet Reading Room located on the mezzanine is the perfect location for intimate wedding party gatherings and photography, and features yet another tiled, decorative fireplace for added elegance.
