Finding love in NY can be difficult and Craiglist thinks they have the solution to the connections that may have been missed in the daily rush of city life.

With Missed Connections, the website has developed a classified section where users can post descriptions of people they may have come across or interacted with briefly either on a train or in a cafe in hopes of finding them again.

This year, the Transit Museum will be hosting a Missed Connections themed Valentine’s Day event in Grand Central Station. At the event, Sophie Blackall will speak about her Missed Connections based book of illustrations and Alan Feuer will read his Missed Connection ad inspired poetry. Blackall has been illustrating these missed connections since 2009.
