YORK-York County recently announced that the Virginia Tourism’s life-sized LOVE artwork will remain a permanent fixture along the waterfront in Yorktown. The letters are currently on display along Riverwalk Landing between Water Street Grille and the Freight Shed and are available to the public for photo opportunities.

“We are definitely a unique destination,” Kristi Olsen, York County’s Tourism Development Manager, said in a press release.  “There are so many vastly different reasons a person may fall in love with Yorktown.”

Previously, York County had to rent the LOVE artwork from Virginia Tourism, which it did as a marketing tool. The LOVE letters are an extension of the iconic “Virginia Is For Lovers” brand. There are roughly 300 permanent LOVE letters, which are called LOVEworks, in many localities across Virginia.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
