Benches Removed From Firehouse at 14th and Newton St. NW

Back in July we had a Dear PoP discussing this location that provoked 114 comments. A reader mentioned that the benches had been removed and I stopped by on Monday to check it out. Not a soul was around. I don’t mean to start the same conversation again, but do you think these benches shouldn’t have been placed next to a firehouse in the first place?

Seeing them removed made me think of the protest benches I posted about last week.
