Strolling down West 79th Street in Manhattan the other day, I came across the same bench planted four different ways. Each was in front of a different apartment building.
I don’t know if all the buildings are owned by the same landlord, or how it came to be that each residence had the same bench.
My least favorite was the one painted black, though it might be that I also didn’t like what they planted. I liked the first bench, top, for its rich stain bringing out the wood grain.
Which one do you like best?
