Top 10 Proposal Locations in New York


A National Historic Landmark and a New York City scenic landmark, this world-famous, Manhattan park is known as the ‘green heart’ of the City.


Among Central Park‘s many popular backdrops for photos are the Central Park Zoo, Central Park The Pond, and the Central Park Mall. Hosting an estimated 38 million annual visitors, the park is heavy on the foot traffic.


You truly can’t get more classic than Central Park. There is an endless number of picture-perfect spots to choose from! The beauty of the Bow Bridge makes it an ideal location to propose


The Manhattan skyline is one of the city’s most romantic features, and Brooklyn Bridge Park has one of the skyline’s best views. It makes sense that the park’s stretch is a prime spot for proposals. The Promenade is a particular favorite, but don’t sleep on DUMBO’s section of the park, which is home to a rotating selection of public art and the super-romantic Jane’s Carousel. Post-proposal, be sure to dine on celebratory pizza at Grimaldi’s like a true New Yorker.

The Brooklyn Bridge is one of my favorite places to capture both proposals and engagement photos! Early in the morning is the perfect time for photos: the light is soft as the sun rises and the bridge is less crowded.


The coolest part about proposing at Times Square is being able to put a personalized message on one of the billboards in the heart of the Big Apple! To make sure your message gets across, you can always rent screen space. A creative take on the Jumbotron sports proposal, schedule this go-big-or-go-home scheme through the annual Valentine's Day event.


New York City has SO many fantastic views. The city is breathtaking, and there are many places you can go to enjoy the skyline. If you want to propose while visiting NYC, there’s nothing like having the Empire State Building as the backdrop to make it a beautiful, memorable moment.

Many romantic comedies have idealized the iconic empire state building and its 360-degree view of the Big Apple, but that doesn't diminish its grandeur. The trickiest part of popping the question here is the timing. Of all the buildings in New York that are globally familiar, none is more so than the Empire State Building. Featured in many great movies such as “Sleepless In Seattle”, “An Affair To Remember” and, of course, “King Kong”, it’s a location that is hard to beat, just for the sheer majesty of it.


The Central Park Zoo is located at the southeast corner of Central Park in New York City. It is a fun and creative proposal idea in New York. CENTRAL PARK ZOO SECRET PROPOSAL would be ideal for the couples who is nature or animal lover. You will have the sea lions be your proposal witness! 


An acronym for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass,” DUMBO is a classic spot for photos.


Every beautiful, cool, iconic thing about New York City is in one small radius. “Cobblestone streets, the Brooklyn Bridge, Pebble Beach, Jane’s Carousel, the NYC skyline, the now Instagram-famous Washington Street—you cannot go wrong in DUMBO. We would recommend that you schedule your proposal or engagement session mid-week unless you want to compete with giant wedding parties and quinceaneras on the weekend.”


Situated beneath the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge Park is an 85-acre wonderland along the East River waterfront that offers spectacular vibes of Manhattan and a picturesque setting for engagement photos.


Located in Battery Park along the Hudson River, Pier A Harbor House is a prime spot for admiring the Statue of Liberty. Sit outdoors and also admire the sailboats and sunset while getting cozy over oysters, garlic shrimp and craft cocktails. Pick a quieter night so you can propose along the waterfront railing without having to jockey for a spot. Or head upstairs, where the co-founders behind acclaimed cocktail bar The Dead Rabbit have recently opened the high-end BlackTail. This sexy spot channels a throwback Cuban vibe, from the décor to the menu, along with plenty of candlelit tables to boot.

Midtown Loft & Terrace-Proposal-Photogra

With the Empire State Building as its backdrop and 360-degree views of Midtown, the gorgeous venue of Midtown Loft & Terrace is “New York” through and through. The 4,400 square-foot terrace features a landscaped garden, mahogany decking, brick walls, and natural lighting, making it an ultimate setting for a lavish proposal replete with ample roses, candles, and maybe even a string quartet. If you’re crafting this mega-proposal in the colder months, Midtown Loft has an indoor space that emanates sophistication with copper windows, antique copper light fixtures, and a fireplace.


The lush, 250-acre landscape of New York Botanical Garden offers plenty of space, beauty, and romantic spots to pop the question. While there’s no bad place to propose marriage among the blooms, waterways, and arbors of the garden, our favorite proposal areas include the Water Lilies and Lotuses, Perennial Garden, Cherries area, and Rose Garden. Be prepared to guide your love to the spot by going on a reconnaissance mission a few days before the big day to map out a plan.

Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center-Pho

We can’t think of a more classic holiday proposal setting than beneath the 100-foot Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center, which has been featured in memorable scenes of yuletide classics like Home Alone and Elf. As your partner says yes, their tears of joy will sparkle beneath the 30,000 twinkle lights and massive Swarovski crystal star, adding to the magical moment. To celebrate your future together (and defrost your fingers), make the short walk to La Maison du Chocolat and indulge in the acclaimed hot chocolate.

Pier 17-New_York-NYC-NY-Proposal-Photogr

Pier 17 is located in the Seaport District of NYC. Pier 17 is a truly unique venue, modern and sleek looking. It offers to overlook the Brooklyn Bridge over to the water. You see both Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge. This is a very new and hidden Gem in New York City.  Pier 17 has become a major attraction in the area. When the Brooklyn bridge lights up at night once the sunset, it adds extra romantic for the two of you. Your partner would appreciate if you pick a place with amazing views. Also, not as extremely crowded as any of the popular locations in New York. After your successful proposal, the two of you could take a romantic walk at Battery Park. It is definitely very memorable for your life! Propose in Pier 17 would be a great option for you.
