chez vous caterers specializes in on-location catering. This is the first in a series of posts highlighting some of the beautiful and interesting  locations that we’ve worked with.

Today we’re spotlighting Staten Island’s historic Alice Austen House.

The Alice Austen House, also known as Clear Comfort, was the home of noted photographer Alice Austen. The location is designated as a National Historic Landmark, which means that the structure represents an outstanding aspect of American history and culture. There are fewer than 2,500 properties designated National Historic Landmarks.

Along with it’s fascinating history, Clear Comfort also has a sprawling grounds and a truly unique view of New York City.

Though there might be locations in New York that are as breathtaking as the Alice Austen House, there is none more spectacular. The panoramic view, stretching from the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan to the Verrazano Bridge, is the ideal backdrop for events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, communions, or bar mitzvahs. We host intimate cocktail parties, festive barbeques, and extravagant dinner dances.  Furthermore, the Austen House is an ideal place for a meeting away from the office.
