Yesterday, reader Dave sent us these photos of some street seating options in Williamsburg. He wondered if it was courtesy the MTA, since the plastic seemed a lot like MTA plastic. Luckily, other people (well, blogs - Williamsburg Walkers, Curbed) were wondering the same thing and it turns out that the seats were from a Conflux Festival installation called "Have a Seat. "

Artist Caroline Woolard's statements says, "Although my 'Have a Seat' project may seem like three-dimensional graffiti, it is removable with the right chuck for the bolt that slides in the holes of the u-channel. People will see the seats and either sit on them or not, but I hope all people will enjoy resting while waiting for buses or friends." Her blog also has the locations of the seats.
