Pictures: Lexington Avenue “parklet” installed


Check out how the parklet looked at LAAFF over the weekend. Visiting and enjoying the parklet helped me understand the $5500 price tag organizers put on it.

It’s a sort of urban patio, with a railing, benches, tables and chairs, all sitting on an attractive raised platform surrounded by live plants.

I think I’m sold on the parklet, though leaving the landscaping and patio furniture out overnight doesn’t seem like an option.

Note the chalkboard asking visitors what they want to see in Asheville, and where.
