On February 12, people living in NYC will get the chance to walk up and down a so-called Valentine's Day boardwalk made entirely from debris left behind by hurricane Sandy.

This green-oriented piece of urban architecture was designed by Situ Studio, and Inhabitat explains that it will not be so much a boardwalk but a public art installation.

Still, visitors will be given the possibility to walk in and around it.

Commenting on the idea to build this year's Valentine's Day boardwalk using Sandy debris as raw material, a spokesperson for the Museum of Modern Art stated that, “This heart is a frame for lovers and a great civic gesture commemorating the outpouring of support and help in the wake of Sandy.”

This public art installation is to be unveiled on February 12, and those who wish to go check it out can do so until March 8.
