Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Saturday, October 06, 2021

If you’re going to get hitched in as drab a setting as the New York City Marriage Bureau, you might as well try to brighten the scene slightly with your newly-nuptialized tag art. The semi-famous “wedding graffiti wall”, long the ire of City bureaucracy, is in danger of extinction with the Bureau’s move to new offices.

I was unaware of the Big Apple’s allure as a marriage ground zero:

But on Thursday, The Post reported that the Manhattan marriage bureau is to undergo an extensive relocation and renovation, overseen by the mayor’s personal interior decorator Jamie Drake, as an effort to attract more nuptial tourism — who knew there was an official classification? — like its rival in marriage destinations, Las Vegas. New York City is second to Clark County in Nevada in the number of wedding licenses issued.

Get a gander at the scrawled sentiments here. I’m less impressed that they’re all rendered with ballpoint pen. If you’re going to make a mark-up of your wedded bliss, whip out a spraypaint can and do it right!
