NJ Transit bus stops for marriage proposal

“This might be the first time this has ever happened at the bus terminal,” said Port Authority employee Jennifer Friedberg.

Adam Frohlinger, 21, says he chose to propose to his girlfriend on the back of a NJ Transit bus deep inside New York’s seedy, exhaust-choked Port Authority Bus Terminal because it’s the last place she would expect a marriage proposal. He was right. Leora Feigenbaum, 20, of Teaneck, New Jersey, was more than a little surprised when she boarded Bus No. 7174 late yesterday afternoon and found Frohlinger (from Long Island) on the bus holding roses and an engagement ring.

“I’m definitely impressed,” said the bride-to-be afterwards, clutching the flowers and showing off the diamond ring on her finger.   

“This might be the first time this has ever happened at the bus terminal,” noted Jennifer Friedberg, who works for the Port Authority and had advance notice of Frohlinger’s unorthodox proposal. 

Frohlinger and Feigenbaum met two summers while working at a summer camp in upstate New York. They are both juniors at Yeshiva University and plan to get married in August.
