The New Leaf Cafe for Wedding Receptions

The Secluded Garden Location You’ve Dreamed About Is Steps Away in Upper Manhattan

wedding table set up in tent at new leaf cafeLocated on a bluff overlooking the majestic Hudson River, Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan is a 67-acre world apart from the bustle of the nearby city.

If you’ve dreamed of a romantic and secluded garden destination for your next event, look to the park’s New Leaf Cafe.

Located in a beautiful 1930s-era field-stone building, designed along with the park itself by famed landscape architects the Olmsted Brothers, the cafe offers a beautiful venue at any time of year.

Fort Tryon Park is also the location of the famed medieval art museum and gardens, The Cloisters.
