So, how are some of the city's single men coping with the day of love? We asked five of New York's most eligible bachelors to find out.
Cooper Cheatham – Director of Culture & Programming at Freehand New York
“Valentine’s Day is my mom’s birthday, so I grew up always celebrating it with her, our family, and friends. I always look forward to the fun, cake, and sweets that come along with Valentine’s Day. I just opened Freehand New York, so this year I’ll be celebrating with her in spirit at Studio drinking wine and enjoying the baklava ice cream with my best friends.”
Young Paris – Rapper
“Since I’m single I’ll be spending Valentine's Day with my mom, who is the ultimate Valentine. She likes dark chocolate so I’ll be buying her lots of it”
Ayler Young – Fashion Designer
“Since it is Fashion Week, I’ll be focused on my new collection and getting the final touches done before presenting it. I live in LA but will be in NYC for Valentine's Day. I’ll probably get a trim at Frank's Chop Shop on the LES to look fresh."
Peter Thomas Roth – Founder of Peter Thomas Roth Skin Care
“Curious to see what all the hype is about, so I plan to go see Fifty Shades Freed this Valentine’s Day.”
Omar Sharif Jr. – Actor
“Oh, likely just another night in bed eating peanut butter out of a jar. The only person I've invited into my bedroom lately is Rachel Maddow and I think it’s getting serious.”
