Sam wanted to do a romantic show of love for her girlfriend Amy for Valentine’s Day. Sam printed out 14 giant heart-shaped lawn signs, each printed double-sided with a red side and a purple side, and each with a character (letter, symbol, or space) printed on each side. When the signs were set up so that the red side faced Amy’s window, the signs spelled: “I LOVE YOU AMY.” At midnight, each of the signs would be flipped around so that the purple sides faced Amy’s window, spelling the name of a New York destination where Sam would be waiting with flowers.
Unfortunately, Sam’s friends were a bunch of goofballs, and the signs weren’t set up quite properly. Fortunately, the signs were at least printed correctly and set up in the correct respective locations. But some of the signs were set up with the purple side facing Amy’s window, whereas other ones were set up with the red side facing her. Can you figure out how the signs were oriented, and figure out where Sam is waiting in New York?
For purposes of this puzzle, Y is not a vowel.
