Straus Park was named in honor of New Yorkers Ida and Isidor Straus, the city’s very own Romeo and Juliet. As passengers on the Titanic, the two chose to sink together rather than face a life without their spouse.

At Straus Park, there’s a gorgeous and incredibly romantic sculpture of Isa, which is inscribed with the caption, “Lovely and pleasant were they in their lives and in their death they were not parted.” And even if you’re not sentimental or superstitious, Straus Park represents a beautiful place to ask the big question, and hopefully, launch a new life together with your special someone.

Not everyone needs flowers, chocolates, and champagne to plan a perfect proposal. And if your idea of fun involves more thrill-seeking than fancy restaurants, take her or him to one of the most exciting spots in New York: Coney Island’s Cyclone Roller Coaster.

Also, if you want to add some spice to the occasion, be sure and ask her before the roller coaster’s famous plunge. That way, if he or she says “Yes” to your proposal, you’ll be able to enjoy the roller coaster together as fiancé and fiancée

What could be better than popping the question in the heart of New York City? At the Empire State Building, you can stand tall (or get down on one knee), take a deep breath and ask for your special someone’s hand in marriage while you enjoy amazing views of the city.

Also, the building is located only minutes from the Theater District, Times Square and other New York City attractions, making it simple for you to potentially celebrate a positive response after you make your proposal.



For those who can’t get enough of New York City’s awe-inspiring skyscrapers, a visit to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center is a must.
