Benches #2-12: Lots of new public seating!

Welcome back to the Public Bench Project blog. As you may have noticed, a healthy number of benches have been popping up around the Inner Sunset recently. Although we haven’t slacked on that front, we certainly have been slacking on posting updates on this blog. So today, we present all newly installed benches. Also, check out the interactive Google Map on the right, which also includes all bench locations.

Bench #2: Outside residential house at 6th & Lincoln

Proud resident Maria poses on her new bench.

Bench #3: Cloud bench outside Surreal You Hair Design

This bench is located along a fairly busy pedestrian walkway, right next to an N Judah stop, outside Surreal You Hair Design, 538 Irving St @ 7th.

Bench #4: Hearts bench, 6th & Irving

This one gets good use.

Bench #5: Outside Paresh Martial Arts, 447 Irving st @ 6th

This bench is used when parents wait to pick up their children from martial arts practice.

Bench #6: Midas Touch, Irving between 6th and 7th

See the golden strip down the middle. This is located along the white “Yes We Can” fence on Irving between 6th and 7th Avenues.

Bench #7: Above Garden for the Environment, Locksley @ Lawton St

This is located behind and above GFE’s plot.

Bench #8: Outside residential building, 6th between Irving & Hugo

This one has ginko leaf touches and will be updated with a more comprehensive design…

Bench #9: Le Video, 1231 9th Avenue

This bench outside Le Video rental store is getting a good amount of use (not in this pre-opening hours photo, of course).

Bench #10: Urban Bazaar, 1371 9th Ave @ Judah

Urban Bazaar is a fair trade and locally handmade gift store. This bench has slightly shorter legs on one side to accommodate for the slight slope. Nice design!

Bench #11: Dance With Life Chiropractic, 1475 9th Av @ Kirkham

This bench is further up the hill than most, meaning a good rest for weary legs.


Bench #12: Everybody Bikes, 1352 Irving St

This is much more westerly than the rest of the benches. More in this area please!


…And that’s about it for now. If you want your own bench, contact us. It’s easy and you’ll love what a bench does for you, your neighbors and friends.
