This little hollow across from City Hall is most noteworthy for Robert Indiana's 1978 "Love" sculpture. The piece has become a popular symbol for the "City of Brotherly Love" and its image is plastered all over the city. It's 20-foot-tall appeal lies in its simplicity: The letters L, O, V, E, stacked on top of each other. During a usual lunch hour the park attracts an odd combination of Armani clad businesspeople and skateboarders who skinny-dip their modes of transport in this concrete pond. They're actually fun to watch.
Love Park in Philly is the perfect place to go for a number of things. Lunching, laughing, exercising, sightseeing etc. It is a melting pot of cultures and people who gather together in the heart of the city. Skaters deserve that right as well. They can be quite entertaining and quite frankly have been more helpful than some of our city's police officers.
