What Are the Best Proposal Spots in New York City?

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about popping the BIG question. If you still haven’t picked out an engagement ring, you can get a great deal on one by shopping pawn shop engagement rings. Buying from a pawn shop can save you hundreds on an engagement ring.

Part of planning the perfect Valentine’s Day proposal is selecting the right spot in New York City. There are plenty of options to choose from, too, ranging from Central Park to Times Square and more. Ideally, you want to think about what your special someone enjoys and likes the most.

For example, if they like seeing Broadway shows, then plan a Valentine’s Day proposal where you take them to see a show and then propose on the steps in Times Square. You can even arrange ahead of time for your proposal to pop up on the screens in Time Square. Following the proposal with a nice dinner at their favorite restaurant would be a perfect engagement proposal.

Times Square not for you? Check out some of these other top proposal spots in NYC.

1. Empire State Building

It is a top tourist attraction and perfect spot to propose to your loved one and provides incredible views of the city. Plus, the building is open late so you can plan a nighttime proposal and see the city all lit up.

2. Central Park

Central Park is actually the number one proposal destination, not just for New Yorkers but for people from all across the U.S. and foreign countries. There are horse-drawn carriage rides, Bethesda Fountain, Bow Bridge, Central Park Boathouse, Central Park Zoo, Belvedere Castle, and Strawberry Fields that all are great spots for proposals.

3. Rockefeller Center

Rockefeller Center offers the ice rink through April, making this a great Valentine’s proposal spot. You can also go to the Top of the Rock for stunning views. You can even make arrangements ahead of time so champagne can be enjoyed after your loved one says “YES.”

4. Jane’s Carousel

This famous carousel has been used as a filming location for numerous TV shows and movies. It is located in the Brooklyn Bridge Park and operates year-round. You also get stunning views of the city from the Park.

5. Liberty Island

Liberty Island offers another great location in NYC to get engaged. However, you have to plan a morning or early afternoon engagement because Liberty Island closes at 4 p.m. You could even make the trip up to the top of the Statue of Liberty’s Crown and propose while looking out at the city.

6. Hayden Planetarium

Lovely same sex couple sharing affection

If your loved one is into stars, take them to the Hayden Planetarium to make your proposal while watching one of the star-lit shows. The Hayden Planetarium is inside the American Museum of Natural History. There are plenty of great exhibits in the museum that also make perfect spots to propose besides the planetarium.

7. Harbor Cruises

Several different cruises take you on the Hudson for stunning views of NYC. You can book a themed cruise, nighttime cruise, dinner cruise, or private cruise. You could even have your friends and family waiting on board to surprise your loved one after they say “YES.”
