A Great Neighborhood, Paris-Style: Part 2
Now there are thousands and thousands and thousands more. Every day people come to the bridge, lock in hand. As you’d expect, some locks are very simple, some ornate. Some look as iffy as a first-date, others have the solidity of a long marriage. And some, like the ones friends of mine brought from New York, are elaborately engraved, a display of both boundless optimism and good planning.
If you’re not a planner and you haven’t brought your lock with you, don’t worry: The booksellers along the river now sell locks of every kind. And any passerby will be happy to snap a picture of you locking up.
