Proposal on 86th St

A major expansion of the New York subway system is already proving lucky for love. Adam Meagher, a designer with New York City’s Economic Development Corporation, proposed to his long-term girlfriend, Carolyn Grossman, in the new 86th Street station on the Second Avenue Subway – which is currently under construction.

The pair were on a special tour of the vast new caverns underground. Both are interested in architecture and railways and had joined the tour. Unbeknown to Carolyn, her fiancé, Adam, had arranged with subway chiefs at MTA to pop the question 100 feet below 86th street – well away from the hustle and bustle of the city that never sleeps.

Adam, much to the surprise of the rest of the party, got down on one knee and said, ‘Just like New Yorkers, I’ve been waiting a long time for the Second Avenue Subway. I have also been waiting a long time to ask you this question, which is: Will you marry me?’ Carolyn said yes adding ‘One hundred per cent.’

The Second Avenue Subway marks a major expansion of the New York underground system – the first in 50 years. Adam Meagher chose the soon- to-be station under 86th Street because Carolyn grew up in an apartment building right above.
