  1. I know this park. Is there also documentation for the other elements that make these benches completely unsittable? I.E. the convex shape, the lack of backrests, and in general the placement in the park to cut out cross-traffic?

    I end up running past this park and loop around the corner for the extra distance, but I imagine while walking, these kinds of corner parks, where intersections (especially in DC) meet at fairly acute angle, are engineered spaces to keep people from just cutting through, that iron fence behind the benches being a prime example.
