Lucky Lovers Can Enter to Win a Chance to Propose on Valentine’s Day on Times Square’s Giant Screens
(Times Square, N.Y. – Wednesday, January 29, 2014) This Valentine’s Day, thousands of New Yorkers and visitors looking for romance in New York City need look no further than the Crossroads of the World. You can meet your perfect match, say “I Do” to your special someone and make your love last forever – all in a New York minute on Friday, February 14th starting at 11:30 a.m. at 46th Street and Broadway, Times Square.
For those who have already found their true love, a range of romantic activities and exciting contests are on offer for you and your beloved:
For lovers looking to surprise their special someone, why not pop the big question on one of Times Square’s iconic big screens? One lucky story will be selected from contestant video submissions, awarded the opportunity to propose on a big screen in Times Square and enter to win a 7-night cruise for two on board Celebrity Cruises to the Caribbean, Alaska or Bermuda. Applications must be submitted by February 3rd.
The only thing that is more romantic than proposing at the Crossroads of the World is actually getting married at the Heart of Times Square in a once in a lifetime ceremony. Couples looking to get hitched on Valentine’s Day can do so right in front of the Sixth Annual Heart Design Match-Maker sculpture conceived by Young Projects and fabricated by Kammetal. Reservations are a must for this special moment!
- And for those who have already said their vows, we invite couples of all ages and backgrounds to profess their love once again at our vow renewal ceremony at 6 p.m. on the Red Steps on Valentine’s Day. A special invitation is extended to lovebirds whose kisses bridge boundaries, be they religious, political, racial, or national, as well as couples in wedding attire. Register for this FREE event and also be entered to win a 7-night cruise. Couples attending the Vow Renewal ceremony will enjoy an exclusive performance from the Official Broadway Show of Valentine’s Day in Times Square and one of the most romantic shows to open on Broadway: The Bridges of Madison County.

For those presently unattached, Times Square’s “Match-Maker” sculpture, on display February 10 to March 11 at 46th Street and Broadway, Times Square, will use zodiac signs to cosmically connect people this Valentine's Day. Visitors are asked to arrange themselves at twelve points around the heart-shaped sculpture in order to reveal each viewer's four most ideal astrological mates, allowing for potentially novel connections between lonely souls or settled lovers. Sculpture designer Young Projects, with fabricator Kammetal, was the winner of this year’s invitational competition hosted by Times Square Arts and Van Alen Institute, and sponsored by Snuggle® fabric softener, who is fostering connections between people and making the world a softer place.
Those looking for love should also stop by Times Square for two great singles events happening at Dave & Busters, at 234 West 42nd Street from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. just a week before Valentine’s Day. On February 5th, meet your match at the Gay Meet Market Singles Mingle in Times Square presented by TheMenEvent or try your luck at the Singles Mixer on February 6th.
