A few big hearts remain in San Francisco -- four big hearts remain at Union Square, and this big heart still has a firm anchor on Chestnut Street.

According to Wikipedia:   Hearts in San Francisco is an annual public art installation started in 2004 by the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation for the purpose of fundraising. The choice of hearts is inspired by the Tony Bennett song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco".

Each year, uniform heart sculptures are [very creatively] painted by different artists and installed at various locations throughout San Francisco, including Union Square and Yerba Buena Gardens. The [Most] heart sculptures are [were] auctioned off at the end of each year's installation.
