The Foundry is a 19th Century building that housed The Albra Metal Foundry (their logo is still visible on the corner of the building at 9th Street and 43rd Avenue). By 1906, it was one of several steel foundries in the Long Island City area that catered to the needs of New York City's riverfront manufacturers. By the 1970's The Foundry was essentially an abandoned space, housing defunct vehicles and a mountain of debris.
In 1980, the Du Val family purchased the property. They restored and renovated the space to reflect its original industrial character, and began hosting events in 2001. It is the only foundry in the area still standing today.
Rated #1 place in NYC to get married by About.com/weddings http://weddings.about.com/od/weddinglocations/ss/NYCLocations.htm
A large part of this restored 1906 foundry’s appeal lies in its industrial yet romantic aura. Couples can have their wedding inside or in the spacious courtyard; both can fit as many as 200 guests. A landscape nursery next door provides the plants that dot the courtyard, so you can save on décor. “Every time I go there, they have the most beautiful greenery out,” says Lee. A rooftop terrace can be used for cocktails or small events (up to 80 people)

From http://www.weddingwire.com/ "We recently worked with Chris and his team for our wedding in NYC. We had previously worked with him for a business event - so it was an easy decision when we had to select our wedding caterer.
Firstly, Chris was fantastic when we were planning our menu and his guidance and suggestions were second to none. On the evening, the food was exquisitely presented and we have been receiving compliments from all of our guests on the menu we selected and the taste of the food - many have said it was the best wedding food they have ever had. We would highly recommend working with Chris. He is also very reasonable cost wise particularly in the NYC market."

derajja spins an eclectic mix of Arabic, Indian, South American, North African and Flamenco music. He says about dj mixing, "When all the elements of a mix are rough and mixed up and still pulled apart somehow, separate and respected, and NOT smoothed over and watered down under the weight of some 4/4 beat - but STRONGER in the identify of each beautiful music & rhythm ... it is in this, the differences, that make us whole and better and more individual. I hope you like the music I am spinning ~ the amazing music these artists make."
