Best Places to Propose in Brooklyn and the Bronx
Whether you are on the West Coast,the East Coast,or somewhere in the middle,the best places to propose are not necessarily the places that are the most expensive or picturesque. The My Trio Rings Best Places to Propose series continues this week with a peek into Brooklyn and the
Bronx,with a little bit of a walk on the wild side.
If you live in or around
New York City, you have a wealth of finedining and amazing culture right at your fingertips. But not everyone needs toget engaged during high tea at the Plaza Hotel. If you’re hoping to propose ona budget in boroughs such as Brooklyn or the
Bronx,you may wish to consider a few less traditionally romantic places for a uniqueand memorable proposal.
1. The Bronx Zoo
Step into another world when you enter the steamy, tropicalparadise that is the Bronx Zoo butterfly garden.Without spending the money on an exotic
vacation, you will find yourselftransported to a virtual
Eden.For only $3 above the standard zoo admission, this striking exhibit offers anexcellent location to propose on a budget. Just find a hidden corner as youmeander through the lush foliage, and get down on one knee to pop the question.
2. The New York Botanical Garden
For the last 120 years, the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx has been one of New York’s most beautiful places. Plan a walking tour through different gardens and exhibitions using the NYBG app,
then propose in the fragrant Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden or one of the four colorful “rooms” of the Perennial Garden.
3. Coney Island
Coney Island is a long-standing
Brooklyn landmark, and itoffers a wide variety of options as you consider the best places to propose.You can choose to propose on a blanket on the beach under the fireworks onsummertime Friday nights. You might find it romantic to propose
at the top ofthe Wonder Wheel at sunset, or perhaps your spouse-to-be would prefer a morehigh-speed proposal on the Cyclone roller coaster (if you choose that option,it might be best to pull out the diamond cluster engagement ring after the ridehas
come to a complete stop!). Or perhaps the best moment of all will be whenyou are walking hand-in-hand along the boardwalk.
Which ring will you choose?
