So, how are some of the city's single men coping with the day of love? We asked five of New York's most eligible bachelors to find out.
“Valentine’s Day is my mom’s birthday, so I grew up always celebrating it with her, our family, and friends. I always look forward to the fun, cake, and sweets that come along with Valentine’s Day. I just opened Freehand New York, so this year I’ll be celebrating with her in spirit at Studio drinking wine and enjoying the baklava ice cream with my best friends.”
“Since I’m single I’ll be spending Valentine's Day with my mom, who is the ultimate Valentine. She likes dark chocolate so I’ll be buying her lots of it”
“Since it is Fashion Week, I’ll be focused on my new collection and getting the final touches done before presenting it. I live in LA but will be in NYC for Valentine's Day. I’ll probably get a trim at Frank's Chop Shop on the LES to look fresh."
“Curious to see what all the hype is about, so I plan to go see Fifty Shades Freed this Valentine’s Day.”
“Oh, likely just another night in bed eating peanut butter out of a jar. The only person I've invited into my bedroom lately is Rachel Maddow and I think it’s getting serious.”
