CORR FINAL NRBID Find Your Heart in New Rochelle Downtown

Starting today, Monday, February 8 through the end of the month, you can find a 7ft tall Instagram-worthy heart-shaped flower arch right in the heart of New Rochelle at the corner of Division St. and Huguenot St. Created by Enchanted Flowers, this is the perfect spot for your Valentine’s Day Instagram photos with you and your loved ones. This beautiful Flower Flash is large enough to capture enviable photos with all of your favorite people-- from your significant other to your best friends, family members and even your furry friends. 

The New Rochelle Downtown BID has also teamed up with the New Rochelle High School students to display the teen’s creativity and love for New Rochelle Downtown. These students range from freshman to seniors and are all part of the Performance and Visual Arts Education (PAVE) Program as well as the National ART Honor Society (NAHS). The teens have decorated red oaktag hearts with their own unique artistic style as part of the outdoor “Gallery of HeARTworks”. Starting this week, in time for Valentine’s Day Weekend, these decorated HeARTworks will be displayed in business windows in New Rochelle Downtown for safe and easy outdoor viewing.

“Now more than ever, we need to show love to our dedicated business owners, our customers and our community,” said Karel Littman, Executive Director, New Rochelle Downtown BID. “We invite you to come “Find Your Heart in New Rochelle Downtown”! Take picture-perfect selfies at  the Flower Flash, visit the Gallery of HeARTworks in our windows, and enjoy our Restaurants and shops at the same time.”
