Renew Your Vows at the Crossroads of the World on Valentine’s Day
Friday, February 14, 2020
Duffy Square / Red Steps
46th and Broadway
This Valentine’s Day, the Times Square Alliance will host a celebration of love and romance during a large vow renewal ceremony on the iconic Red Steps in Times Square on Friday, February 14th, at 6:00 PM. The ceremony is free and open to people of all ages, genders, religions, races, and backgrounds.
As the lovebirds renew their vows, they will overlook the winner of this year’s annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition: “Heart Squared” by MODU and Eric Forman Studio – made of 125 mirrors tilted in various directions within a steel frame that evokes the outline of an anatomic heart – “Heart Squared” transforms the spectacle of Times Square into kaleidoscopic images of people, buildings, and brightly-lit billboards. While the position of each mirror seems random, the designers developed a specialized technique to calculate the specific angles in order to hide a playful surprise. As viewers move around the structure towards a special marked location, those hundreds of reflections suddenly coalesce, revealing a pixel heart of urban life surrounded by a field of mirrored sky.

As the vow renewal concludes, official Times Square confetti will flutter around the participants.
