As you may have heard, today is Valentine's Day. (Exclusively reported here first.) Anyway, on this occasion, The Village Voice speaks with Pilar and Walter La Rosa, the owners of Pilar Jewelry Repair at 32 E. Seventh St. between Second Avenue and Cooper Square.
The couple, who are originally from Lima, Peru, have been married for five decades. And they've been running this shop for 20 years. Reporter Araceli Cruz talked to Pilar about love and marriage and romance ... "Couples are too independent today. Couples should do everything together. Women go off with their friends too much. Instead they should bring them over, even the singles ones."
