Spinning Chairs of Spring St. Park

Twelve free spinning chairs are installed in a quiet park on the corner of Sixth Avenue and Spring Street in Manhattan. Walking past you would not know that they are able to spin under your own foot power.

[Gary Spino, 10/14/2020]

The "swivel seats" arrived in 2018. They were designed by an architectural firm, and sold to trendy New Yorkers with the assurance that "they have them in parks in Paris and Barcelona."
