Engagements on Ice

We've always known Citi PondSM at Bryant Park is a great date spot. Ice skating beneath the lights of the Empire State Building with the grand backdrop of the New York Public Library = romantic, if you ask us.

But lately we've witnessed more couples taking their relationships to the next level on the ice, and pulled together some of the big moments that made their way to YouTube. These men deserve the applause...it takes talent to get down on one knee in skates!

The simple, traditional proposal: 

The 'I've fallen and I need you to help me up, but first accept this ring' proposal:

The elaborate declaration of love followed by a proposal:

Regardless of how the question was popped, we're happy to know that the Pond played a roll in an important day for many couples.

Did you and your sweetie happen to get engaged in the park? Leave a comment and tell us about your big moment.


  1. Well, we didn't get engaged ON the ice, but rather next to the ice. I even wrote a pretty little recap of it here: http://islandofreality.blogspot.com/2010/12/big-news.html. And one on CitiPond's Facebook page too. Yeah, I pretty much can't stop talking about it. :)

  2. Congratulations to you and your fiance! You have such a sweet engagement story and of course, we're so happy the park has a special role in your relationship. Thank you for sharing it with us.
