Love Locks

I had forgotten all about this NYC happening until I read this article on Nicole Jane. It’s an old Italian tradition that when you fall in love with someone, to put a lock on a bridge and throw the key into the water below. A symbol of your everlasting love for each other. People have been putting locks on the Brooklyn Bridge, unfortunately the city has someone cut them off. Even so, I love the romantic notion.
