After making stops in Times Square and DUMBO, Situ Studio’s Heartwalk is returning to the Rockaways.

Heartwalk- the 30-foot heart constructed from Hurricane Sandy salvaged boardwalk in the Rockaways and Atlantic City- embodies the collective experience of Hurricane Sandy and the love that binds people together during trying times. Whether it was the radically reconfigured landscapes, the compromised infrastructural networks, or the temporary solutions that emerged in the days and weeks that followed the storm, Hurricane Sandy confronted all New Yorkers and New Jerseyans by transforming the familiar. Heartwalk was originally commissioned by the Times Square Alliance and the Design Trust for Public Space for the Times Square Annual Valentine Design Competition.
