Where Forrest Gump Sat - Bench Site

From the movie Forrest Gump. This is the site of the bench where Forrest sets waiting on a bus to take him to see Jenny, and describing his life events to whomever will listen. The bench was located here only for the filming of the movie -- the bench was setting where the one way sign is located.
