The Challenge - Restated

Thanks to the New York Times, I've got some new visitors, here's my initial post explaining my project. I hope you enjoy and pick up your own key this weekend!

Take one single girl, the most inspiring public art project yet, and summer in New York City and you have the idea for a perfect blog:

Key2thecity, key2my heart.

After being presented with the key to the city and now having the ability to unlock 24 secret sights around all five boroughs, 24 dates will be had throughout the summer, seeing if both love and intrigue can exist in the city where no one sleeps.

The rules:

1) Every first date this summer must somehow incorporate a key to the city site:

2) Each sight can only be visited once before another sight is visited.

3) Men or women may be repeated before sites, meaning that a site may be visited on a second date if the man or woman warranted a second visit.

4) No ex-boyfriends allowed as sight visits unless they too are warranting a second visit.

5) As the key to the city project is to expand our city horizons, each site visit date must also incorporate a food or drink spot never before tried.

5) Whoever wins my heart also wins my second key to the city.

6) Have fun, love life, love NYC, love love.,



PS. Shoot me an email at if you're interested in visiting a site with me!


  1. This is great. You are the NYC version of me. I went on 50 Dates in 50 Days and blogged about it at I hope you're having a blast!! :)

  2. Site, not sight. Unless you're there for the view, of course. Love your idea!!

  3. This is such a great idea. I'm here because of the Times, and will be following you along on your adventures. I hope I can pick up a key when I'm in the city this Saturday.
    And I hope you find true love.

  4. Ran across this on NY Times and absolutely love it! I wish they had something like this in San Francisco so I could copy your idea :) Looking forward to reading more!

  5. Lauren, this is a great idea! I'd love to learn more about your experiences. Mind if I interview you on my blog? Please email me if interested

  7. Heard about you from the new york times and this was such a genius idea!! best of luck!
