There are endless ways to do that in the city that never sleeps. In fact, there may be too many options when making a proposal in NYC. So, what are the best proposal spots when there is an iconic location everywhere you turn?
The experts at The Concorde Boutiqute Hotel New York are here to help you make the big decision.
These are our 7 top spots for making a proposal in NYC:
1. The High Line
The High Line is a popular park on the West Side of New York City. It was once an old stretch of railroad slated for demolition, but it has been transformed into a 1.45-mile-long greenspace boasting several public programs, art displays, performances—and beautiful gardens that just might be the perfect surroundings for a proposal.
The High Line got a new beginning. What better place to start yours?
2. One if by Land, Two if by Sea
This fine-dining restaurant was voted the 5th most romantic restaurant in the world by Architectural Digest. Is it the candlelit tables? The chandeliers? The exposed brick? It all blends to make you feel as if you’ve journeyed back to a more romantic time.
The One if by Land, Two if by Sea restaurant typically sees at least one proposal a day. Will yours be one of them?
3. The Rink at Rockefeller Center
If you’re planning a winter engagement, The Rink at Rockefeller Center is a classic place to propose. Get down on one knee as the magnificent Christmas tree sparkles behind you and the crowd spins around you on the ice. Alternatively, you can splurge for the Special Moments package. Choose from a classic proposal with “your song” playing in the background or the more intimate private proposal package, which gives you thirty minutes alone on the ice with your loved one.
4. Tiffany & Co.
Getting engaged at this world-famous jewelry store takes care of the two birds with one stone: the ring and the proposal. Take your beloved in to “browse”—and then get down on one knee. You may also be able to plan your engagement ahead of time and get the staff in on the action.
No matter how you organize it, an engagement at this iconic store will be nothing less than perfect. A truly romantic proposal stories to tell at Tiffany & Co.
5. Empire State Building
Whether you’re a fan of An Affair to Remember, Sleepless in Seattle, or just enjoy beautiful art deco architecture, the Empire State Building is a classic spot for a proposal in NYC. It’s a popular tourist destination during a trip to New York, so it can be an ideal location if you’re hoping to make a surprise proposal. Just add it to your sightseeing list, and they’ll be none the wiser.
Imagine the one you love looking through one of the many viewfinders only to turn and find you on one knee. You can even request the Happily Ever Empire package, which includes priority access, champagne in a private corner, and a guided tour.
6. Central Park
We could write an entire article on places to propose in Central Park. The options are endless, and they’re all equally lovely. The Shakespeare Garden and cherry blossoms make brilliant backdrops in the spring.
Propose during a carriage ride through the park or while rowing your beloved across the Central Park Lake in a rented boat. The architecture and sculptures located throughout the park provide endless idyllic locales, as well.
Sometimes, the most romantic proposal is one made in private, after spending a weekend sightseeing or holed up in your comfortable suite at The Concorde Hotel New York. Our boutique hotel is quiet, with just four rooms per floor, and ideal for couples. We can offer breakfast in bed, room service through Butler Hospitality, and you may have the option of booking the terrace suite.
We always aim to exceed guests’ expectations. Just let us know how we can help make your proposal extra special, and we’ll be happy to help.
Love is always in the air in New York City.
You don’t have to go far to see pedestrians walking hand in hand or couples reaching across the tables in restaurants. If you stroll through Central Park on a nice day, you’ll find weddings, engagements, and photoshoots at every turn.
Why not add your own romantic gesture to the mix? The Concorde Hotel is always happy to offer advice and assistance when making a guest’s stay in NYC (or a proposal in NYC) extra romantic. Choose from our honeymoon package or breakfast in bed package. Ask our concierge for advice on romantic excursions.
And keep the ring well protected by utilizing the in-room safe that comes standard in every room at The Concorde Hotel.
