What is the capacity of the NYIT de Seversky Mansion?

It depends on the style of the reception:

Traditional Style (Maximum: 146 Guests)

After enjoying a spectacular cocktail hour with display stations and hand-passed hors doeuvres, your guests will be seated in the ballroom, surrounding you and the dance floor, for an elegant and unforgettable evening of cocktails, dinner, and dancing.

European Style (Maximum: 230 Guests)

Our signature European-Style reception blends the best features of a traditional-style event with a mansion-style flair. The festivities begin with a lavish cocktail hour with your choice of hand-passed hors doeurves, chef-attended stations, and cold appetizer displays. A formal dinner with your friends and family follows, featuring a menu created exclusively for you by our executive chef and culinary team. Following dinner, you and your guests can dance the night away, and enjoy our European dessert cafe.

Gatsby Style (Maximum: 300 Guests)

Sophisticated and elegant, our Gatsby-Style reception treats your guests to a continuous cocktail reception beginning with an array of hand-passed hors doeuvres and cold displays. After the cocktail hour, enjoy an array of chef-attended stations, hot displays, and top-shelf bars throughout the mansion. The celebration continues with dancing in the ballroom or under the stars in the glass-ceilinged Garden Room, and concludes with our European dessert cafe.

Will there be other events happening at the same time as my event?

It depends on the type and size of the event.  Weddings and othe large gatherings typically have exclusive use of the mansion. However, we do reserve the right to book an event prior to a wedding and to book simultaneous social events (contingent upon which rooms are utilized and the size and nature of the event).  There is a required minimum of 2 hours between events to allow for turnover and set-up.  Events that require or request exclusive use of the Mansion will be subject to a $3500 Exclusivity Fee.

Are we able to have a ceremony at the mansion?

Yes. If the weather permits, any ceremony can be held outside on our picturesque bluestone patio overlooking the lake. In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved indoors.

Do I have to provide my own linens and/or silverware?

Our clients have the option of renting linens from an outside vendor or selecting from a choice of our house linens.  We include flatware, stemware and china that will enhance the ambience of your event.
