A Valentine from Walk About New York

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched—they must be felt with the heart.”
—Helen Keller (1880-1968)

Some sights, some things to see, in New York City come and go, creating a once–in-a-lifetime opportunity for visitors and locals alike. This wooden heart, presented to you to celebrate the Feast of St. Valentine, is one such example of ephemeral New York.
This site-specific work of art, from February 2013, is entitled Heartwalk. It is constructed of wooden planks that were taken from New York and New Jersey beach-community boardwalks that were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012.
It had been installed just north of Times Square at Father Duffy Square, which you can visit as part of the Five Squares and a Circle Tour.
