New York is without question, one of the world’s most romantic places. How many fairy tale romance films have you watched where there is a romantic New York venue used? The globally renowned landmarks and unique scenery ensures that when it comes to popping the question, New York is one of the top destinations selected for a romantic proposal setting.
Here are the Top 5 NY Proposal Venues:
1. Times Square
Does it get any better than New Year’s Eve in Times Square? The famous Ball Drop attracts an estimated 1 million people each year. With the lights of Broadway and the pyrotechnics that are used, you will certainly light up your loved one’s life by proposing in this fantastic destination. Most years there is a performance from a famous singer to celebrate, so it really does have everything.
If you want to go really BIG, you could even try to hire an advertisement board. I’m almost in tears just thinking about someone popping the question here! It’s not just magical on New Year’s Eve – Times Square sparkles all year round!
2. Central Park Horse and Carriage
Just a bit further over town is the beautiful park that has been the setting for so many great film scenes. Breakfast at Tiffany’s, When Harry Met Sally, Home Alone… the list is endless. You can take a horse and carriage that will take you around the park and stop at the place you choose to pop the question. How could your loved one say Neigh to that?!
3. Top Of The Rock
One of New York’s top attractions, if the proposal itself doesn’t take your breath away, the views certainly will. It’s beautiful at sunrise, sunset or night-time but try to avoid a cloudy day as it might ruin the atmosphere. Another similar venue is The Empire State Building but people tend to find that you get a nicer setting and more room at top of the Rock. If you get down on one knee with a great ring at this place, how can they resist?
Talking of Rocks, if you haven’t picked out the perfect ring yet, ascotdiamonds.com has a great range and are just a few blocks away from all of these amazing venues.
4. Brooklyn Bridge
Brooklyn Bridge is another picturesque landmark that helps making New York so special. At night when it is lit up, with the city lights and glistening water surrounding it, there is nowhere quite like it. The famous bridge that joins Brooklyn and Manhattan is a perfect venue to propose!
5. Rockefeller Ice Rink
If you’re looking for a place that will melt your loved one’s heart, look no further than the Ice Rink at the Rockefeller Center. Again, you must have seen this on screen so many times. Hire some skates and hold hands as you skate around a perfect setting. You might want to practice getting down on one knee first wearing skates. Also, try not to fall over and injure yourself, as that would seriously dampen the occasion!
Okay, I’m off to get some tissues and watch When Harry Met Sally.
