On a park bench in September

Better late than never 

Late, but not too late for the last of this year’s Summer Sessions on the Square, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) has replaced the park benches at the square.  I think it was last December that they came and stole away the old benches minus many seat boards that had disappeared over the years.

I would have liked to see something colorful and creative like this bench that was part of a public art project in Washington, D.C. (photo left), but the new metal benches seem more in keeping with the Chicago Landmark Logan Square Boulevards District.
