NYPD Barricade Hack: A Bench

Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands. Like these two gentlemen geniuses from Spanish Harlem, New York City who finding a lack of seating and an abundance of police barricades have flipped over an NYPD barricade and jimmied it into the fence to create their own police barricade bench. The physics of this cantilevered piece of DIY street furniture is actually pretty ingenious.

The guy on the right is the actual creator of this bench. Apparently the cops frown upon this type of hack and come by frequently to take back their property. Cause that’s just how they roll on the East Side.
