How sad. I had my Bar Mitzvah reception there in February 1965. It was my first grand entrance down a spiral staircase.

Isn't this news just the way of tradition in general being swallowed up by progress everywhere. Don't we have enough retail! It's just one of the reasons I left New York 22 years ago. Banks, gas stations and shopping plaza's at every turn. I'm proud to say I was married at the Huntington Townhouse in 1973. Over 200 guests and it was an elegant affair. I was still a young man and my teenage wife even younger, we had a ball. The carved ice statues and desserts were sublime. The champaign fountains were wonderful, everything was just right,a majestic evening for all. I can't understand how or why the quality of this once famous catering hall has fallen to it's present condition. Someone should have resurrected this institution and created a palace to be proud of and continue the tradition.So sad..

The Towne House is screwing the people that already reserved for their affair. They should at least stop booking and close after the last affair is done. We need another Loews on Long Island like we need Cancer. From the sky , Long Islnand rooftops are Orange, Blue, orange , blue. what the heck man!?
This is also really bad news for the "Stretch Hummer Limo" business...

My husband and I decided to get married at the TowneHouse in 1991 and his parents had their wedding reception in the same room in 1962 !
We had the BEST wedding ever ! The food was great and so was the service.
People in our family still talk about what a wonderful time they had !

I no longer live in New York and just found out that The Huntington Townhouse has been torn down. I was married there in 1980. I lost my husband recently and now the place that we got married is gone too. How sad!

I am completly disgusted by the huntington townhouse. I booked an affair with then, Gave them $12thousand and not only did my affair never happen but they never refunded me. That little pervet Steven Silver just kept beating around the bush till it was closed.

Wow! You should have seen it coming down. It was ghostly looking just corroding away the last few years. Wish I urban explored it. You should have seen it coming down.
It's a good thing though, because the more you look around L.I. is turning into a ghost town. So many closed businesses and about a house on every block for sale. I was never inside the town house as funny as that may be, being that I was in a wedding band and lived here all my life. 5 more years I'll be retiring and don't think I'll be able to afford living here.

Too bad that money hungry owner is screwing people out of their weddings. The buzz has been for over a year this place was being sold. it was for condos but that now changed to a lowes. I remember as a kid in the 60's what a palace this was, but the last few years it has become a joke to have a wedding there, It has become just terrible. what can you do long island is full of closed strip malls and mega stores
I would bet money this owner is a liberal.

That is what happens to tradition and to cities that the liberals run. Just take a look at what 40 years of liberals of done to Detroit. Long Island is on it's way and all you liberals should be so proud. You went after all those evil rich people and got what you wanted. They took their money and businesses and went somewhere they are welcome still. Problem is we are running out of America where success is still celebrated. Thanks liberals!!!! Job well done!!!

Many of you have no clue about the Huntington Town House. Bet none of you know that old blue eyes used to hang there in the 60's...Nice place for the fellas. There were a few movie stars there at one time or another. But anyway, relax -it was only a building and location. Nothing lost.
