Let's get to the point: The Bench consists of some kinda famous dudes who sit on a bench in front of an American Apparel on Orchard and Houston St. They hang out, and anyone can come hang out with them. We found ourselves hanging at an extra special Bench—bought from New Jersey and built at Coney Island—to take advantage of the crowds at The Siren Festival. This time the dudes were hanging with renowned artist and 2007 Fulbright Scholar Espo, who was selling original t-shirts. We took pictures of the bench and Espo's Coney Island studio (after the jump) to make sure we weren't dreaming and also so you guys would believe that this exists. But really, go see for yourself: The Bench happens at 10 PM every Saturday.
