  1. Isn’t the 1934 World’s Fair Bench, desgined by Robert Moses and Kenneth Lynch, a New York City classic? Why would we ever choose to use some earth-hostile immitation?

  2. Hi Stacy,

    I didn’t know that! Where would I find further information about that, any ideas?
    (I did a quick google search but would have to spend more time on it.)

    Thanks.

    Cathryn.
