Man paints proposal on billboard

NEW YORK, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- A New York man said he climbed an empty billboard overlooking an expressway to paint a marriage proposal for his girlfriend.

Drew Henkels, 28, said the proposal he painted on the billboard overlooking the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in June is still in place near the Flushing Avenue exit, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.

"I was mulling over a couple of proposal scenarios," Henkels said. "None really felt worthy, so when this idea struck me I couldn't let it go."

Henkels said he met his girlfriend -- now fiancee -- about a year ago in her native Australia. She visited him in November and moved into his apartment in April.

"I never felt like this in my life," he said. "I wanted to make sure she knew I was serious."
