To sit or not to sit

There's something missing from this Astoria park called "sitting area". But I can't quite put my finger on it. Hmmm...what could it be?

That's actually a yoga/meditation area. (BYOM of course).

Thanks for the chuckle.

And who wouldn't want to sit a stone's throw from the noisy bridge and in the middle of a concrete pad?

It's a misprint. They left out the "h"

NYC has learned that their altruistic intent
to provide benches didn't work very well
with our increasingly uncivilized population.

They often get alternative uses like:

3rd world moms' diaper changing stations;
derelicts' toilets; drug dealers marketplaces; etc.

Street furniture provides opportunity!

To hell with the "sitting" area. Plant some nice trees, butterfly bushes, and coneflowers.Add a pretty fountain with some water.
This could at least attract some birds and butterflies. Endangered species need every square inch they can get. New York is on a major bird migration route. Amazing things show up in Astoria. I have seen warblers, hummingbirds and pheasants here.
