LandMark Fete

The mission of LandMark Fete seeks to foster the blending of Preservation, Partnership, and Programming.  Due to immense fixed cost, numerous historical and other sites of importance face large budget shortfalls.  Coupled with costs for needed restoration or other vital improvements, initiatives are delayed or not even feasible.  Without private or nonprofit intervention, historical properties are absorbed by municipalities or other government entities which cannot support these additional burdens.  However, with LandMark Fete’s innovative blending of Preservation, Partnership, and Programming, exceptional special event venues are identified and made available for public use.  More importantly, these sites receive funding from an entitiy in the private sector which insures proper maintenance and longevity.

A full 10% of all special event revenue helps PRESERVE these architectural gems.  The funds are transferred directly to the property, and support ongoing costs associated with repairs, improvements, and maintenance.

A PARTNERSHIP between the property, LandMark Fete, and curated vendors facilitate a suite of creative options to suit the most discerning and varied client taste.  In addition, select vendors better suit the protection of the properties, and the wear and tear associated with vendor rotation is minimized.

An array of successful PROGRAMMING finds life at these versatile and engaging locales, and the cycle of Preservation, Partnership, and Programming creates a viable operational plan for the future.

155 and Broadway

155 and Broadway is one of the finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture in the City of New York.

Completed in 1914, the interior nave soars to a breathtaking height of 81 feet, and is as massive as it is beautiful.   Enormous, wooden beams support a wood hammered ceiling of intricate and repetitive decorative motifs while jewel toned stained glass windows cast ever changing displays of color during the day and a subtle, back lit, play of color in the evenings.

Smaller adjacent spaces include a centrally enclosed, square garden surrounded by connecting vaulted passageways. Together, this unified transitional area creates the perfect setting for a variety of functions.  The Crypt is perhaps the most evocative room. Aptly named, guests access via grand staircase descending to the lowest level of the building. Four enormous columns expand into a ceiling of Gothic style vaulting.  A perfect pallet for interesting lighting design, the versatility of use can capture an intense, sexy lounge vibe, casual, contemporary standing reception, or the formality of a multi course, seated dinner.

 

Mission statement

The mission of LandMark Fete seeks to foster blending of three foundational principles: Preservation, Partnership, and Programming.  Numerous historical sites across the nation record large budget shortfalls annually – not only for general operations, but for major capital improvements.  Delay of these repairs endangers the longevity of the structures and creates hazardous conditions for workers and visitors alike. However, with LandMark Fete’s innovative blending of Preservation, Partnership, and Programming, exceptional special event venues are identified and made available for public use.

10% of all special event revenue helps PRESERVE these architectural gems.  The funds are transferred directly to the property, and support ongoing costs associated with repairs, improvements, and maintenance.

A PARTNERSHIP between the property, LandMark Fete, and curated vendors facilitates a suite of creative options to suit the most discerning and varied client taste.  In turn, select vendors better suit the protection of the properties, and the wear and tear associated with vendor rotation is minimized.
