It's happened! The lawn chairs, placed in the Times Square pedestrian plazas to much derision, pain and enjoyment, have been gathered up to make way for more permanent chairs. The Times Square Alliance asked sculptor Jason Peters to create some art from the chairs, and the Post says he used "zip ties to lash about 70 of the chairs together Friday morning in an installation that will stay up until 9 p.m. tonight. Maybe you can say adieu before the public screening of the Mad Men premiere in Times Square at 10 p.m. (details).

The new chairs will be placed in the plazas starting tomorrow; the TSA says it's sending the lawn chairs to people who requested them, "We're also working on a tongue-and-cheek certificate of authenticity to go with each."
