The Skywriting That Took New York City's Beautiful Day by Storm

May 21, 2012 at 10:58 AM | by | ()

In you case you missed it on our Instagram feed yesterday, a single sentence of skywriting appeared above Manhattan on Sunday afternoon and, in the clear blue sky, spelled out "Christine Hall Will U Marry Me."

Immediately Twitter and Instagram went crazy with news and images of the skywriting, as it could be spotted from as far as Riverside Park on the west side of the Manhattan, to where we stood in Astoria, Queens (cause you know we look up at the sound of any airplane engine). The entire stretch of dot-matrix cloud letters could be best read from the middle of Central Park, where it seems the couple were relaxing on what was, weather-wise, perhaps the nicest New York day yet.

After snapping the shot above and posting it to our Instagram (find us as "jaunted" on the app), we caught this glimpse of the six airplanes used to create the message, which likely cost the guy as much as a good engagement ring.

So did she say yes? Well, it seems so.
