Boob bollards upsetting locals


UPI News Service, 08/08/2011 

New York City's Meatpacking District businesses are taking the initiative to remove stone barriers resembling breasts from neighborhood plazas, officials say.

The breast-shaped barriers were installed in 2008 as part of a city Department of Transportation project that brought the Meatpacking District six newly designed plazas that year, the New York Post reported Sunday.

"They're the breasts. They just sit out there and do nothing," said Matt DeMatt, owner of the Gaslight Lounge.

"The plazas look neglected, dirty and unkempt. No one is taking care of them," said Lauren Danziger, executive director of the Meatpacking District Improvement Association.

The association is a non-profit leading the proposed $500,000 plan to re-beautify the promenades.

The city has agreed to remove all of the accessories from the plazas and hire Frank Bulfamante & Sons, a large landscaping company, to make over the spaces and maintain the grounds beginning in September.

"It won't look anything like it does now. This will beautify the public area and make it engaging," Danziger added.
