Each year Times Square Arts features an art installation for Valentine’s Day. This years piece honors NYC immigrants and is titled, We Were Strangers Once Too created by the Office of Creative Research.
The sculpture consists of 33 red and pink metal poles representing data derived from a 2015 American Census Survey. They are “inscribed and hued to represent the national origins and shifting populations of foreign-born NYC residents. When viewed from a certain vantage point, these poles take the form of a heart.
The sculpture will be on display for a month beginning Feb. 7th at Times Square’s Father Duffy Square.
It has been an amazing journey from the moment I decided to become an Interfaith Minister back in 2005. At that particular time I didn’t know where it would lead, but I knew that I had opened up myself to be of service to myself and others. I still don’t define myself as religious but I feel blessed and liberated when I can assist people on their spiritual journey. I began marrying couples in 2010 and it has been one of the most gratifying experiences. I am so moved by all of the wonderful couples I meet, hearing their stories and always feel honored to bring their families together. As a New York City Wedding Officiant, I have met people from all over the world, straight and gay who are overjoyed to finally marry the person they love. I have won The Knot “Best of Weddings” award for the past 4 years and because of all of my amazing reviews, I am proud to announce that I have finally made The Knot “Hall of Fame” Award. Happy New Year to everyone and please contact me at (646)709-2090 to discuss your upcoming celebration.
Some people only imagine getting married in the warmer months of the year, especially when they envision having it outdoors. New York City is the perfect landscape for weddings all year round. Central Park offers many beautiful locations and if you love the many different tourist attractions, a wedding can even be performed there. As a New York Officiant, I have had the joy of marrying couples all over city in the Winter. Brooklyn Bridge Park, Battery Park and Times Square are just some of the great locations for a wedding in New York.
