Friday night my beau and I went to the MET Roof Garden & Martini Bar to unwind from a busy week. If you’ve never been I would highly suggest checking it out before the summer is over. It offers great views of southern Manhattan and an aerial view of Central Park. Every year the MET commissions a different artist to do a sculpture installation and this year is Cloud City by Tomas Saraceno.
Visitors must get a ticket in order to climb inside the structure and only two people are allowed at one time and only for twenty minutes. Knowing this made it all the more exciting when my beau and I witnessed a marriage proposal happening in the very top “cloud”! I noticed this specific couple because the girl was wearing a green dress which caught my eye. The next thing I noticed was the guy kneeling but I thought he might be taking a picture of the structure. Little did I know he was proposing to his girlfriend! This started to bring attention to the other rooftop visitors and when she embraced him with a hug the rooftop began to cheer and clap! I was so engrossed in watching this that I didn’t think about taking a picture until they were starting their descent. All I had was my phone so the picture isn’t that great but I wanted to share this wonderful story of two lives coming together!
If you’re looking for a unique place to propose in the city, Cloud City is definitely a place to keep in mind! The exhibit will be open until November 4, weather permitting.
