New York, NY (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
New York City’s “big apple” moniker may as well be a heart, at least to the millions of couples who get engaged in the city that never sleeps each year. From the Empire State Building Observatory that cinematic couples like Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in “Sleepless in Seattle” have made famous as a romantic must, to the swoon-worthy Gapstow Bridge in Central Park, the NYC romantic getaway package experts at NYCTrip.com, official site of New York City Vacation Packages, are ready to unveil their top five spots to propose in New York City this Valentine’s Day – and all year round.
NYCTrip.com reveals their number five NYC proposal spot - the Gapstow Bridge near 59th Street in Central Park. This iconic bridge is known for its dazzling view of NYC’s skyscrapers and resembles the Ponte di San Francesco in San Remo, Italy.
“Central Park is made only the more beautiful with its juxtaposition against the hustle and bustle of the NYC streets. The park is beautiful in every season, and getting down on one knee with the tranquil Pond on both sides is a scene to be remembered,” says Barry Tenenbaum, of NYCTrip.com.
The NYC romantic getaway experts at NYCTrip.com name the Staten Island Ferry as their number four proposal locale. The Staten Island Ferry transports over 20 million people each year, but with its panoramic view of the city, it’s a romantic 25-minute trip where plenty of ‘I do’s’ have been said and celebrated.
As NYCTrip.com’s number three pick, Rockefeller Center has long been a winter proposal favorite, with its ice skating rink seemingly made for an engagement backdrop. The Ice Rink actually features an Engagement on Ice package, allowing the couple to bypass the waiting line, be the only skaters on the ice during the proposal, and toast to the future with flutes of champagne rink-side, along with several additional romantic touches.
Central Park makes the NYC romantic getaway experts’ list a second time – with a horse drawn carriage ride through Central Park as the number two best spot to get engaged in NYC. With the 20-minute carriage ride taking the couple throughout renowned Central Park statues, Wollman Rink, the Pond, the Carousel, and more, it offers a more private way to say ‘I do.’
“Asking her to marry you while on one knee in a horse drawn carriage not only says chivalry is alive and well, but that you’ll be her knight in shining armor throughout every day of your lives,” explains Tenenbaum.
NYCTrip.com is proud to announce the Empire State Building Observatory as the top spot to get engaged in New York City, with the 86th floor observatory acting as a magical background to your engagement.
“The Empire State Building Observatory is a treasured landmark that many have fallen in love with, where many have fallen in love, and where countless return to celebrate that love. It is romance, drama, and thrill 86 floors up above NYC,” says Tenenbaum.
