Bring it On!

Curbed reports that New York City has unveiled some groovy new street furniture designs. It's about freaking time! Go to any other global city (and even a few villages in Europe) and you'll see well-designed, contemporary street furniture instead of the overflowing trash cans that are the most interesting thing on most NYC blocks. Final designs for automatic toilets, bus stations, and newstands by Grimshaw (architecture firm for the new Fulton Transit Center in Lower Manhattan) should be approved shortly, manufactured by local vendors and installed not a moment too soon (although no projected date was mentioned).
