Take these old MTA benches off of LaMaMa's hands — or they'll be chainsawed!



An EVG reader passed along this Craigslist post

We payed full price, $650 each — you can have them for free, you just have to pick them up. We will even help load them into your truck. They weigh ~500# each. We used them in a show and the show will be done. You MUST pick them up Sunday night or early Monday morning at LaMama theater. Otherwise they will be chainsawed...

FYI: they are 10' plus long, so you would need a box truck, not a cargo van.

Seriously, haven't you always wanted one of these in your back yard? Or you artist loft?

Was entertaining thoughts on acquiring one of these for my back yard until I remembered how incredibly uncomfortable they are, meaning my fat ass would barely fit between the rails. Remember, the MTA designed them to BE uncomfortable and unsleepable...

Good luck getting rid of these, LOL !

Anonymous 8:57, why would you want to sleep in your back yard?

Burn them, they are useless.

Oh I've seen bums in full REM sleep on them. Then again, that's gotta be the most comfortable place for them to sleep...

12:25: bedbugs is right. I haven't sat on one of these benches for years--ever since reading that tests had shown that the benches in many stations (Union Square was one I recall) were riddled with bedbugs.

Seems like these might be useful in a community garden, like La Plaza or El Jardin de Paraiso.
