Brendan’s proposal in Long Island City was a party! Brendan chose to propose to his girlfriend on the waterfront where they live. The Long Island City waterfronts is one of the best kept secret proposal locations in all of New York City. Long Island City (despite it’s confusing name) is located just a short five minute ferry ride across from midtown Manhattan in Queens. It features the most iconic skyline view you can get, because you can see both the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. I highly recommend this location as an alternative to Dumbo because it’s much less crowded, closer to midtown Manhattan and the view is equally beautiful.
Brendan had his best friends waiting along the waterfront with their backs turned, holding signs spelling out “Will You Marry Me” When his girlfriend approached, they flipped the signs, and Brendan proposed!
