Hi Hart Beat. Some of you might have seen this but The New York Times is pulling this great series called “Summer Love” that I thought you might like to see. The paper is requesting couples to submit summer love stories that they have experienced in New York, for however long, or short amount of time. Not to overdo this but, I love this idea.
So far the Times has pulled together about a dozen features on couples of all kinds. I’ve had the best time reading through them and thinking about all the ways to fall in (and sometimes out) in this city. As much as I love so many cities in the world (Madrid, Boston, Amsterdam, Portland), New York really has the most romantic feeling about it. I think it has something to do with the vastness and the sheer number of possibilities. On any given day you could run into your soulmate, the most romantic bar you’ve ever seen or into a heart-wrenching public breakup on the C train.
This video here is one of my favorite stories from the series. Summer = roller coasters and love = a roller coaster (see what I did there?). I’ve been thinking about submitting Pedro and my story to the paper. What do you think, Hart Beat? Have you found love in New York before?
