    Default And onwards.........

    Ok thanks for all the advise on the boat including the well grounded advise from Schadenfrau(i was listening), the encouraging advise from LOVE-NYC and the über helpful tips from lofter1 + ZippyTheChimp.

    So many of the comments were on this and i have a lot to consider but i would really like your advise on the rest of the days activities. For example Schadenfrau does not recomend the HRC and based on this (See listening) i would like some other suggestions....

    Please any tips on anything i have planned good or bad i want to know

    OK, I just called the Boat House (special events) and they told me that their boats are removed in October and stored for the winter. The women there was very touched by your determination and would have loved to help. At this point I agree with Zippy the Chimp that you would not want to get arrested by NYPD these days...things have changed! Sorry! Plus the women I spoke to insisted that the lake most likely will be frozen in January....at this point you could rent the ice skating rink in central park and put your rubber dingy in the middle of it and propose there...

    I would not do lunch at the HRC...way too touristy! I don't know about your budget but if you want to do something really,really special for lunch before your stroll in the Park, go the Asiate Restaurant at the Mandarin Hotel in the new Time Warner Center (it's expensive but they do have fixed price menu for lunch). The restaurant/hotel lobby is on the 35th floor and you will have a breath taking view of the NYC skyline and parts of Central Park.

    If you are planning to go there on the 31st of Jan. for lunch, you might want to call and make your reservations now!

    Thanks you are being such a great help- i really mean it!!!
    Budget is not too much of an issue, but what is the dress code (i want it to be fun and relaxed-that way i guess the next day will seem even more romantic in contrast)??

    Also when the woman said she would be happy to help-did she say how (plus thanks heaps for calling, that is really nice of you)

    A dingy on the ice rink would acctually be really funny, i could say that i meant to go for a boat ride but it was frozen over-lol i quite like that idea...

    Thanjks for all your help so far - Big gold star for you!!

    Always happy to be of help... The Asiate Restaurant is not exactly a fun and relaxed atmosphere...it's upscale with breathtaking views. It's smart business" attire for lunch...it's really all about the views...and the food is great, of course. Here is their website...take a look and decide for yourself.

    Here is also the link to the wollman ice skating rink in central park...and they do special events ...check out the web site!

    No, the women at the boat house did not elaborate - she was just touched by your determination and for giving this so much thought.

    Look what I just found on the website ..."wollman rink's "perfect date" is second to none when it comes to "popping the question.." http://www.wollmanskatingrink.com/wo...vents/date.php

    PS: I'm sure they would be more than happy to serve you champagne in your rubber dingy in the middle of the rink...PLUS you could have some romantic music playing in the backgournd....beats the lake if you ask me!
