I Love New York – 054

Love in New York starts with East meets West and what happens when New Yorkers come to experience the summer attractions of the Black Hills… in the winter. On the Road takes you to Ticonderoga, New York, and a love story that starts with a drunken Christmas and red wine allergy, only to wake up on the cover of a Harlequin romance. Love in History brings you the tale of the Gladiator of Love, and the woman who had him committed – in her own way: the Hollywood love story of Anne and Kirk Douglas. Our Friends and Lovers narrative is from Maria Rodale and a tale called: Why I Love New York!
