Empty Bench—New York City
The Metropolitan Museum of Art opened its rooftop sculpture garden on August 1, 1987. The garden, with an outdoor cafe, is on the 10,000 square-foot roof of the Lila Acheson Wallance Wing of the museum.
The rooftop offers spectacular views of Central Park and the surrounding Manhattan skyline.
The Met, as its known, is actually located in Central Park, and is almost a quarter mile long, occupying more than two million square feet.
