Residents of Gay Street were bewildered to find an enormous wooden cross pop up in New York City.

The cross was first chained to Micah Latter’s gate, who tells Huffington Post that she is a Christian who believes in “love, peace and hope”.

To her, the unknown person’s actions - putting the cross in the street, and changing its location over the course of nine days - was “pointless and annoying”.

After failing to get help from local authorities to remove the cross, 10 residents decided to spruce it up instead.

Latter, along with her friends, gathered around the cross and painted it the colours of the LGBTQ rainbow flag.

The new cross has been Christened ‘The Love Cross’.

Residents added a “love lock” to the chain, and glued both keyholes shut, meaning the cross can no longer be moved.
