This Brooklyn 'Wedding Watcher' Has Witnessed Couples' Joy In Same Spot For 4 Decades

Posted: Updated:

Since the '70s, Rhoda Hill has been going to Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, New York, on Saturdays for one purpose: to watch the wedding parties that come to the picturesque park to take photos.

"I come because it's something nice to see. It's a happy occasion, everybody's very friendly," the 79-year-old says in the New York Times documentary above. "And I enjoy it. It's something I look forward to every Saturday."

At one time, Hill brought as many as 25 friends with her to watch. Now, there are only a few "wedding watchers," but Hill still takes great pleasure in the beauty and joy surrounding the newlyweds who frequent the park.

She says she plans to keep coming to watch couples gather for as long as she can, because, "it's a beautiful thing seeing two people starting their life together."
