My GF just fell over..booked the trip...

Popping the question if I do not come to my senses:) Stayed at the Drake in July and she fell in love with The City on her first visit. My sister lived in NYC for many years so I've visited often. We'll be there December 17th - 20th so off to the jewelry store. This place has been a treasure chest of advice so thanks to all the regulars!

Sounds like you're planning a super romantic trip. Have you decided where to pop the question?

Bettina: Still working on the details about where. She's a great girl so I can't wait.

Just bought the ring today. My first car was less expensive:)

Must be good to be the girl!

Candela is a great, reasonable romantic restaurant.

Staten Island Ferry is a great place to propose.

A co-worker once told me, if you want to have a serious conversation with the object of your afffection (whether for good or bad), take a ferry ride or the Circle Line cruise:

* The rushing water creates a lot of white nooise, so no one hears you.

* For good occassions, it's incredibly romantic.

* On the other hand, if you want to call them on the carpet about something, they're stuck with you for the duration, and you can both stare at the sights while talking if you don't want to look at each other in the eye.
