The people visiting New York have taken a page from Paris and are placing love locks on the bridge. The love locks symbolize never ending love. The couple typically place the lock on a public structure then throw the key away rendering their love unlockable. There were many, many locks on the Brooklyn Bridge along with an assortment of other items such as earbud headphones. Some of it looked classy while other items, headphones, shoe laces, key chains seemed trashy. As for the ‘unlockable love’ these represent. They don’t last forever. When the items become a safety issue they are forcibly removed by the city. Some of the locks are cut while others are picked. I wonder, does the removal of the lock imply the couple is now split up?
