A month ago I posted about how the big bench at the top of Runyon Canyon was removed mysteriously. No notice, no reason given. It just wasn’t there all of a sudden.

As of this week, the bench is back overlooking Los Angeles, except it’s not a big bench anymore. It’s two regular-sized benches. LADWP gave me notice about the replaced benches without offering an explanation as to why the big bench was removed so we can only guess at its disappearance. For now, it seems, the big bench is not making a comeback. Sad.
