    10 Places for a proposal in New York 27th Aug 07 at 11:56 AM
    I have chosen the Tiffany ring now, so need a venue in New York to as the question. Apart from the cliche empire state, can anyone suggest a place or top restaurant (with a view) to hand over the ring. Your help is greatly appreciated, Tom

    I would have thought the airport when you get there.
    If she turns you down dump her there and tell her to find her own way home whilst you enjoy New York.


    I am of of course only joking and desperately trying to avoid the things my wife is throwing at me for merely suggesting such a thing!!!

    Romantic Ways to Propose

    The moment has arrived when you've found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with. You're ready to ask that big question, it has to be perfect, and dinner at '21' is the place.

    After all, you wouldn't be the first person to propose at '21'. Screen legend Humphrey Bogart proposed to Lauren Bacall at his favorite table in the Bar Room of '21' and many others have followed in his footsteps.

    Our team of highly trained professionals are on hand to work with you to plan every last detail, including hiding the ring in a specially prepared dessert.

    Get a little rowboat and row her to the middle of Central Park lake. It will be quiet and a bit more personal than being jostled by tourists at the top of the rock or Empire State building.

    Book to a show and tell the theatre in advance and then nip off to the Bathroom but in fact onto the stage at half time and announce it there in front of everyone !

    I can recommend a restaurant with a view - "The View" revolving restaurant in the Marriott Marquis hotel on Times Square.

    It's on about the 47th floor and completes a 360 degree revolution in about an hour. You can also just have drinks if you don't want to go for a meal.

    I agree with Central Park but I have to say go to the top of Bathsheba castle (spelt something like that) and the views are amazing across the park and it is very romantic.

    Thanks, I have looked at the options and will plump for the Theatre proposal, afterall who can beat the stage of broadway, secondly will have to be the boat ride topped off with dinner @ the lake.
  • sulliebear
    Not sure that the Theatres would allow this but good luck anyway.

    What about on a horse and carriage ride around Central Park, it was good enough for Micheal Douglas when he proposed to Catherine Zeta Jones!

    for your meal part of your proposal - try the acclaimed romantic restaurant in the village 'one if by land, two if by sea' . see website of same name. lovely, lovely restaurant with much nicer food than the 'View'.
