Full of romantic locations, New York City is a justifiable favourite for proposals. Some sites even help you to go the extra mile: the Rockefeller Center’s outdoor skating rink offers you exclusive ice time and will play a CD of your choice, and the Empire State Building’s famous 86th-floor observation deck has a saxophonist who takes requests. Another lofty location with iconic city views, but none of the hype, is the footpath on the Brooklyn Bridge. In summer, Central Park’s Loeb Boathouse is an inspired choice – rent a paddle boat for two, hire a gondola or propose while dining on the lakeside terrace.
Empire State Building tickets cost US$29, while exclusive access to Rockefeller Rink is US$350. Details about Loeb Boathouse are found at thecentralparkboathouse.com.
