NYC & Company invites everyone to spread the love this Valentine's Day in New York
From a Midnight Moment in Times Square to Romantic Hotel Packages and Chocolate Tastings, New York City Is the Perfect Place to Enjoy Valentine’s Day. NYC & Company, New York City’s official destination marketing organization, encourages New Yorkers and visitors to share the love in New York City this Valentine’s Day. Throughout Valentine’s Day weekend, the City’s five boroughs will be filled with activities and events where residents and visitors can find their true love or cherish time with their loved ones.
“New York City is the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable and romantic Valentine’s Day getaway,” said Fred Dixon, president and CEO of NYC &Company. “From a date night under the stars of the Hayden Planetarium to romantic nature walks and chocolate tastings at Wave Hill in the Bronx, the heart of the five boroughs can be felt throughout the City.”
At the crossroads of the world in Times Square, celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Heart of Hearts public art installation. The display features 12 golden mirrored hearts that create a kaleidoscopic effect, reflecting the fast pace action of Times Square. When the sun goes down, have a special midnight moment together. Artist Rafaël Rozendaal’s color changing silhouettes of two faces kissing, titled Much Better Than This, will span Times Square’s billboards for three minutes before midnight every night in February.
