In most cities across America, baby showers are hosted in living rooms, kitchens, and dens in people’s homes. But in New York City, where the average resident lives in a shoebox apartment, hosting dozens of people in one’s living room can prove to be challenging if not impossible. Thankfully NYC is chock-full of affordable hidden gem venues that feel homey and exquisite and will be just as comfortable as sitting in your best friend’s living room.
