Riverside Park New Deal Sites - Photo #43 - Riverside Park 79th Street to 89th Street

   
43

Riverside Park, upper level, South Mall. I can't be sure of this, but it's possible the benches are original WPA ones, but with new slats. I've seen photos from the 1930s in which the benches look exactly like this, with their concrete uprights. Concrete was the absolute favorite building material of the WPA.
