Love Notes

I recently had the occasion to discuss a book I’d read several years ago entitled, “For the Love of Cities” by Peter Kageyama.  He devotes a chapter in the book to describing “Love Notes,” which are those things “that endear a place to its residents, something that makes them smile or feel at ease, something that provides them with an emotional connection to their place.”  I also attended a presentation by Kageyama and he mentioned some of his favorite love notes:

  • Mice on Main Street in Greenville, SC.  Nine small bronze mice sculptures can be found on Main Street and visitors are given clues to find each one.
  • It's Good to Be Here project in New Orleans.  An artist created temporary notes on the sidewalks to proclaim her love of the city.
What are your communities' love notes?
