The three silver orbs that plagued the new Brooklyn Bridge Park playground are gone for good. The metal structures were meant to be fun, but they ended up burning children—when they weren't breaking noses—since their metal surfaces were heated in the sunlight. According to the NY Times, they were removed on Friday, and last night were replaced by two new items, described as "a new red house and fairy castle." We headed over there check it out (it's still under construction), and it seems some cute animal statues have also popped up.

No word on what's become of the $84,000 orbs, but their Metal Mountain cousin in Union Square Park is still standing tall—last week a cover was put over it in an attempt to lessen burns in the summer sun.
