Time for Valentine's

Times Square heart
Photo by myself in Times Square, around 44th Street and Broadway.

It's hard to describe how populated the area is with large signs and lights. The illuminated billboards loom over the street on all sides. Fortunately for all of us, fluorescent and LED lights are extremely energy efficient.

We're in for an interesting week - Friday the 13th, followed by Valentine's Day and President's Day next Monday.

Times Square is prepared for the occasion, with a heart-shaped sculpture near the TKTS ticket booth. The sculpture will be standing for a limited time, only. Its creation was sponsored by a jewelry store chain.

hallo everyone and thanks!

it was fun to see this sculpture. I'd heard about it in the news. It was especially nice to see everyone interact with it and have their photos taken.

I bet tourists would have a good time posing with this heart shaped exhibit and the huge billboards of Broadway performances!

The scene is so attractive! Wish I were there too!
