Beautiful Moments Can Happen Anytime On Roosevelt Island - Resident Walking Home Spots Marriage Proposal On East River Pier Landing, And She Said .... Yes!!!

On Roosevelt Island, you never know when you may come across a beautiful moment. Roosevelt Island resident Adam Guy reports on one such moment he saw as he was was walking home last Monday evening:

I captured a gem of a photo on Monday evening. A marriage proposal took place on the East River Pier Landing close to the subway.

I don't know the names of the people who got engaged but was told the couple were college sweethearts and had been together 4 years. They are not residents of Roosevelt Island, but the man had been here before and liked it very much. The couple took the Tram over and the woman texted her friend how amazing the Tram was and that everyone should ride it - her first ride.

Their friends decorated the area and waited for their arrival. Onlookers like me gathered around to wait for the moment to happen.

The man dropped to his knees on the Pier and proposed.

She said yes!

And sometimes in New York you witness beautiful moments on the walk home. To the happy couple...!
There have been other Roosevelt Island wedding proposal, including on the Tram and at Lighthouse Park.

Also, a wedding on the Tram.

Congrats to the Happy Couple from last Monday evening..
