NEW YORK — A New York City woman is seeking her mystery Valentine via a large painted billboard in Brooklyn that describes the man she sparked a connection with on the subway.

Twenty-five-year-old Devin Custalow says she felt a connection with an unidentified man on the G train wearing yellow shoes — though the two never exchanged words. Custalow says she got separated from the mystery man after the chance meeting in October and hasn’t seen him since.

Custalow says she posted a message to the website Craigslist describing the encounter, and soon received an offer from Las Vegas hotel Park MGM, who painted a 20-foot mural across from the Williamsburg Hotel describing the meeting.

The mural requests the man in yellow shoes meet Custalow there on Valentine’s Day, Wednesday at 1 p.m.
