The Housing Works Bookstore

Choose to give back on your wedding day when you book your reception at The Housing Works Bookstore. The intimate venue is a Manhattan bookstore, located at 126 Crosby Street, New York, NY 10012, phone (646) 786-1100. This venue seats up to 100 guests, with in-house catering, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and wrought iron spiral staircases ideal for that quirky photoshoot.

One thing that many couples who are passionate about giving back to charity are the donation aspect of The Housing Works. 100% of the proceeds from your event go to benefit the homeless living with HIV/AIDS. The venue has flexible floor plans and includes complimentary dance floor and drapery. Couples will be able to select their vendors, from catering to bar service, music, and florists.

Indulge in Deep Tiqque Massage from Joanna Vargas

While choosing a wedding venue that helps give back to the community is easy, planning a wedding isn't. Choose to relax and unwind with an indulgent skin treatment at Joanna Vargas Day Spa before saying "I Do." The Deep massage helps relax tense muscles, especially for those brides who are putting in extra hours at the gym leading up to their big day. To make your skin glow and invite the touch, choose full-body microdermabrasion for glowing vibrancy. Using a diamond-tipped wand, this treatment gently erases fine lines and removes impurities to reveal smooth, soft radiant skin.
