Clanking with love: Did you know Houston has its very own love lock bridge?
For better or worse, love locks are alive and well in many other cities around the world -- including here in Houston. The most accoutred of the two is a small pedestrian bridge stretching over Allen Parkway. The bridge perpetually shimmers with a smattering of love locks which dangle from its chain-link fence. Love locks also often accumulate on the Rosemont Pedestrian Bridge nearby. Houstonians may have latched onto love locks but, thankfully, the custom hasn’t yet threatened to down any infrastructure.
