There are some benches on the sidewalk on Empire Boulevard between Washington Avenue and Flatbush Avenue. One bench in particular (the one closest to Dunkin Donuts) has been been rendered unusable for a long time because the back of the bench is bent forward. (It's been circled in red.)
CityBench won't put a new bench there because the site "doesn't meet its requirements". When I asked what could be done about the old bench, I was told, "The wooden bench that you are referring to is not a CityBench, and thus there is nothing we can do about it directly."
Does anyone have any suggestions as how to proceed?
