Borough Hall can’t help falling in love with Brooklyn’s “Golden Couples.”
Longtime love was applauded by Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams as the Borough Hall tradition of celebrating couples—together for 50 years or more—kicked off the Valentine’s Day weekend on Friday, February 12.
“We recognize greatness with gold medals and gold trophies, but the most golden achievement of them all is the endurance of love,” said Adams. “The lasting commitment that our Golden Couples have shown is proof positive that Virginia has it wrong: Brooklyn is for lovers.”
The 200 couples in attendance at the event boasted nearly 10,000 combined years of love, according to Adams’ office. Attendees enjoyed lunch, dancing, a photo booth and a sparkling wine toast.
