Brooklyn Bridge - Fulton State Park wedding permits now OPEN


The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy (Empire Fulton Ferry State Park, or EFFSP) have just opened their online permit application for SMALL low-impact (under 50 people max) weddings under the bridge on the new pier. Get in FAST. But remember, it's REALLY expensive. The cheapest is the Boardwalk for 90 minutes seems to be $700 for under 50 people. You can download a PDF with the price list from the link below. For smaller budgets, try the Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Fulton Ferry landing, the Promenade, etc. (Or just the bridge, for a half-dozen people).

Brooklyn Bridge Conservancy Wedding Permits

"There are three locations for ceremonies in the park: The South Lawn (big lawn in front of the Tobacco Warehouse), the North Boardwalk, and the South Boardwalk. The South Lawn can hold up to 100 people, but only a very limited set up is permitted. Both the North and South Boardwalk can hold up to 150 people and have no restrictions for the set up. The North Boardwalk is the area closer to the Manhattan Bridge, near the picnic tables, and is very spacious. The South Boardwalk is closer to the Brooklyn Bridge, located at the very end of the Park and allows for more privacy."
For all private events (picnics, weddings, photography), please contact Sam Wasko at (718) 802-0603 x14.

Remember, there are all those EVENTS scheduled all the time which are busy and noisy and will interrupt your wedding.
