Looking for a creative way to propose to your girlfriend? Declare your love with a street art mural!
A clever New York City groom has done just that. “Caitlin, will you marry me?” reads this graffiti mural in the East Village. The artwork references a random group of objects that must be the bride’s favorite things: a pug, Scrabble tiles and a blossoming cherry tree. There’s also an insider reference to a “triple hand squeeze.”
Who could say no to this romantic gesture?

The marriage proposal is located next to a Chase bank on 2nd Street just east of Avenue A. It is relatively new; it replaced a black, white and red mural that I photographed a few months ago.
The mural is signed by Tats Cru, a group of professional street artists from the Bronx. They create murals for corporate clients like Coca Cola and McDonalds. It ‘s likely that this is a commissioned work, created for a lovestruck groom.
An online search did not turn up any articles about the mural, or reveal whether Caitlin accepted the proposal. But it’s hard to imagine a girl saying “no” after seeing this street art tribute.
