“Top Ten Most Romantic Places in NYC”

The following is a guest post from a Jen And Men reader who I’ll call Sally:

Hi Jen,

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.

Best,

Sally

I hope Sally’s tips were helpful guys — even if you’re not planning on popping the big question.
