New Yorkers, Tourists Wonder Where Is The ‘LOVE’

New Yorkers, Tourists Wonder Where Is The ‘LOVE’


. IN THE SPRING IT WAS TAKEN DOWN AND MANY ARE WONDERING WHERE IS THE LOVE VANESSA EXPLAINS. Reporter: EVERY DAY PEOPLE FLOCK TO THE CORNER OF 55th STREET AND 6th AVENUE LOOKING FOR LOVE. WE WERE EXPECTING THE LOVE SIGN. WE BUST THROUGH A LOT OF SIGNS AND DIDN’T FIND IT AND IT WAS OUR LAST DAY. I WANT THIS PICTURE. I HAVE KNOWN ABOUT IT AND I SAID I’M TAKING A PICTURE. IT’S ALWAYS CROWDED PEOPLE TAKING PICTURES. I NEVER WANT TO WAIT THIS TIME I SAID I WILL DO IT. Reporter: IT’S TOO LATE. IN MAY MIDTOWN’S LOVE SCULPTURE WAS REMOVED WITHOUT WARNING OR EXPLANATION. WE LATER LEARNED WAS REMOVED FOR CLEANING REPAIR. IN SEPTEMBER A NEW STATUE OF A MAN WITH HIS FINGER OVER HIS MOUTH WAS FOUND STANDING IN ITS PLACE. IT’S GETTING MIXED REVIEWS. I DON’T LIKE IT. IT’S NOT AS COLORFUL AS THE OTHER ONE. IT’S ALWAYS NICE TO MIX THINGS UP. I’M — FIRST DAY I HAVE SEEN IT. I’M ENJOYING. I THINK IT — IT’S DESIGNED TO MAKE YOU THINK. SO, YOU KNOW I WAS JUST STANDING HERE WHEN YOU STOPPED ME AND I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WHAT IT IS. Reporter: IT’S CALLED LISTEN AND WAS CREATED BY A LOCAL ARTIST TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO PAUSE AND REFLECT. ACTUALLY IT’S LEAVING MANY CONFUSED. WONDERING IF LOVE WILL EVER RETURN. ON TUESDAY, PROPERTY OWNERS CONFIRMED IT’LL BY THE END OF THE YEAR. ONE EMPLOYEE WASN’T SO CONVINCED. HE SAID OFF CAMERA THE OWNERS DIDN’T LIKE PEOPLE CLIMBING ALL OVER IT. HE IS NOT SURE IF IT’LL IN FACT COME BACK. AS FOR LISTEN. I THINK IT’S — A GOOD TEMPORARY SOLUTION. IT WOULD BE NICE TO COME BACK. Reporter: UNTIL IT DOES YOU CAN CHECK OUT THE SCULPTRURE IN SAN FRANCISCO AND PHILADELPHIA. AS WELL AS JUST A FEW BLOCK AWAY ON 53rd AND 7th YOU CAN FIND A SIMILAR SCULPTURE READING HOPE.
