A bench on the Broadway Malls is more than a place to sit. Each adopted bench has a story to tell—whether a tribute to a loved one, or a hello to the city. A bench can be adopted for $3500 to remember a special person, as a unique gift, or to celebrate meaningful occasions. Each bench is maintained for 20 years and comes with a dedication plaque with a personal message. All benches on the Malls are replicas of the 1939 World’s Fair benches, a combination of wood and iron, typically used in plazas.

Bench plaques measure 2″ by 5 1/2″ and are made of stainless steel with black lettering. There is room for 20 to 25 words. Text must be approved by the BMA.

Bench adoptions are tax deductible as permitted by law.
