Times Square is giving a Valentine to all the immigrants of New York City. A new heart-shaped sculpture called “We Were Strangers Once Too” will be unveiled today on Duffy Square, which won the Times Square Alliance’s ninth annual heart-themed design competition for Valentine’s Day. It’s made up of 33 rods ringed in red and pink bands showing the number of immigrants from over 100 countries who call NYC home—out of a city of 8.25 million, 3.13 million residents were born in another country, according to 2015’s American Community Survey.
