Will the festivities FAB wants to stage on the Putnam plaza be standing only? Since Saturday, the tables and chairs have been lashed to the light poles. Just last Saturday was the freak storm, for which the tables and chairs were set out early and left all day for the snow to pile up on. It was actually slush (the reason half the tri-state area was blacked out) but it looked pretty on the tables and chairs, Jack Frost magic that no one disturbed by sitting on it. This Saturday, which was glorious, has been followed by a run of equally spectacular days, days people could be sitting enjoying the free heat before the winter's dark and cold close in for real. FAB has said the purpose of the plaza is to "bring people together." Which could still happen but they'll either have to stand or get comfortable on a boulder.
