At Least One Couple Gets Engaged in Public on Valentine's Day
The story of the botched Rangers game marriage proposal on Valentine's Day is sad, so thank god NYC the Blog caught a successful V-Day public proposal at Times Square. A photographer was trying to get a shot of the Ice Heart set out by the Times Square Alliance on Sunday when he noticed a fellow getting down on one knee. "Will you marry me?" said the genuflecting gent; "Yes," said his inamorata; hug, kiss, applause, awww. Smart move, guy; according to a British survey, Times Square is the proposal location second-most preferred by women in the world, after "a gondola in Venice."
