A couple of weeks ago I brought up the sad condition of the benches along the Riverwalk and called for their removal, then issued a challenge to the city (Miami Riverwalk Commission) to install better seating. Well the benches along the Miami Riverwalk have finally been removed. (All but one last one closest the Metromover, the corner with the wall and green fence still used as a urinal.) Much thanks to all involved who made this happen. Crews were out today clearing the brush and powering leafblowers. No word on if any new seating will be installed or what type would replace them if any. It won’t take much to improve this section of Riverwalk, at least a good powerwash for the underside of the bridges, maybe some white paint or murals, and bright lighting. Now to get the hotels to pitch in to clean up their part, and a path is still needed beside the Hyatt Regency to Brickell Ave .
