A Heartfelt Love Letter on Orchard Street
This image has been archived or removed.
Taped to the doorway of 98 Orchard Street is a nondescript envelope that reads “Love Letter.” We unfolded the paper within to reveal a heartfelt ode to New York City written by “Cindy.” The typed note outlines some stages of romantic relationships – butterflies at the beginning, the risks taken for love, and the happiness that ensues.
Dear New York City,
We shared I love yous, and I know it’s something I’ve felt from our first dance.
A part of me just didn’t want to accept it. A part of me didn’t believe it was real, but what if it is.
I can’t risk not taking a risk.
And I’m glad I took it. I feel speechless when I think of you. Words are innate to the emotional intensity my mind, body, and soul feel for you. My entity craves your aura, your voice, and your laughter comforts me. I yearn for your kiss on my cheek. You’re a beautiful soul and no matter what, good, bad, life events, sweet, or sour, I promise to always see the light in your soul, and I promise I’ll always love you.
Judging by the inscription on the envelope, this placement is number one of forty; the remaining love letters are presumably scattered about the neighborhood. Have you discovered any?
