Salvaged Hurricane Sandy boardwalk pieces find love in Heartwalk

Situ Studio, a Brooklyn design firm, won the fifth annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design competition. The design, Heartwalk, was inspired by Hurricane Sandy and how local communities persevered in a time of hardship. For Situ Studio, it represents the love that New Yorkers share, always coming together to help one another when it’s least expected. Situ Studio salvaged boardwalk pieces from Sandy’s aftermath—in Long Beach, New York; Sea Grit and Atlantic City, New Jersey; and Rockaways, Queens—to build the 34-feet in diameter installation.
