New York City is a beautiful backdrop for a marriage proposal, but with so many places to choose from, it can be quite difficult to narrow the options down to just one. There are the obvious spots – The Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, The Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller Center – but if you want something a bit different but equally as wonderful, there are four locations that are ideal spots for a romantic marriage proposal with a New York flair.

Helicopter Ride Over the City

New York City is spectacular, but it's even more so from the air. Proposing to your sweetie over the city during a private helicopter tour can be an opportunity to have an unforgettable setting and celebration rolled into one. If there's a special point of interest, the pilot can often accommodate your request to fly over it when you want to do the proposal.

New York Public Library

The amount of beauty packed into the New York Public Library is incredible, especially in the main reading room. The room has a 52-foot high ceiling that is decorated with a giant mural of a sky – the rest of the room measures 78 feet by 297 feet. It is an especially good place to propose to someone that loves to read or has always wanted to visit the library.

Hayden Planetarium

In New York City, it's quite difficult to see the stars because of all the city lights. If you want to do a marriage proposal under the stars without leaving the city, head over to the Hayden Planetarium, which is located at the American Museum of Natural History. Before you go, check the hours, times and events on the date you're planning to propose to ensure you can pull it off without problems or interferences.

Bow Bridge in Central Park

While debating the idea of proposing in Central Park, some may immediately think of doing it while rowing on the Lake, but the Bow Bridge is a beautiful part of the park that also makes an excellent setting for a marriage proposal. The 60-foot long cast iron bridge goes over the lake and has stellar views in every direction. Make sure to hold on tightly to the ring – the last thing you'd want to do is drop it in the water.

New York City is such a huge place with so many things to do! I'd never thought it would also be such a great place for wedding proposals too. But you're right! Fabulous!
