What says summer more than a beach chair?
Many beach chairs.

Times Square's new Broadway Pedestrian Mall
has assorted colors and styles ready for the weary

It was still wet and drizzly
this past Friday morning
as I stopped on the way into the office
to snap these.

As you can see,
the wet did not deter
either
people and pigeons
from enjoying themselves

  1. I love the idea of a pedestrian mall in the middle of Times Square, but I have to admit that in my imagination it was sunnier there ;-).

  2. How great to see an 'old school' beach chair!
    A pedestrian mall with chairs - that's terrific.
    The chairs don't look too worse for wear. Are they replaced often?

  4. It DOES look cold and drizzly, but there is clearly great potential...if the pidgeons don't get to sit on the chairs before the humans do :)

  5. I'm so glad you took the time to photograph these on a wet day! How whimsical ... I've never seen Times Square, and never imagined "lawn chairs" (as we call 'em here) smack dab in the middle of it :-)

  6. Something tells me that without the damp, there would have been a LOT more people... but not as great of photos! ;)

  7. nice.

    I heard on the news they built a park with lounge chairs and all near SOHO (i think) where an elevator train used to be..

    I want to see that park.. cool idea.

  11. I liked the pigeon walking by on the bottom right.

    Yes, it's been wet, wet, wet... Times Square looks rather empty and wet, like it's been taken over by alien beach chairs instead of humans.

  16. I love those exact types of chairs! They seem to be hard to find now, though. I have three on my front porch and my next door neighbor keeps wanting to buy them from me. LOL They definitely are summer!!!

  17. Well it's only water isn't it? Beach chairs. My favourite piece of furniture right now. Great colours on there.

  18. I haven't seen beach chairs like these in a long time...now everyone has the canvas type that break after two summers. Love this!

  19. Hi Daryl....gee I missed going into the city to see this new attraction....is it really a good idea to have beach chairs in Times Square?? Don't homeless people get a little comfortable on them....I think little bistro tabes with metal chairs would have looked less tacky....

  21. Picnic chairs! What a fun and needed thing to have set up!

  22. I read about this happening. Didn't think lawn chairs were going to take the place of cars though.
