The following is a guest post from a Jen And Men reader who I’ll call Sally:
Hope all’s well. I saw you’ve posted a few things on Valentine’s Day so I thought a list of “top ten places to propose in NYC” would make a good post for any of your readers in New York especially as 4 million Americans are expected to pop the question or receive a proposal on Feb 14th.
So fellas it’s time to get creative and hit one of New York’s top ten most romantic places as suggested by CitySights NY:
- Rockefeller Center (Top Of The Rock) – for the scenic lovers, take in breathtaking panoramic views of the entire city
- Times Square – for the stage lovers cuddle up amongst the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway district
- The Empire State Building – re-live the scene from Sleepless in Seattle atop the iconic landmark that boasts impressive 360 degree views
- Fifth Avenue – wander the streets of Fifth Ave and marvel at the exquisite jewels at Tiffany & Co.
- Lincoln Center – for arts & entertainment lovers head to the home of the world’s leading performing arts center
- Central Park – take a stroll, horse and carriage and rowboat around the picturesque parklands. While there why not stop for lunch at the Boathouse Café
- The Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges – not to be missed at night, the bright lights offer remarkable views over the East River
- Madison Square Garden – for the sporting and music loving couple, step inside the arena where some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment have performed
- Brooklyn Botanical Gardens – roam the specialty gardens and collections; the Shakespeare Garden, the Japanese Hill and Pond Garden and make sure to head back in Spring to see the beautiful Cherry Blossom display
- Flatiron Building – marvel at the odd shape and immensely intriguing architecture of this building making it a classic symbol of NYC
CitySightsNY offers many daytime and nighttime tours to help create an unforgettable Valentine’s Day, like the All Around Town Tour which has a web special of $49 for up to 48 hrs of use.
I hope Sally’s tips were helpful guys — even if you’re not planning on popping the big question.
