Congratulations to the people of Niantic who thought of putting benches outside of most establishments.
Most people who don't drive, or are trying to save gas by reducing car use, can come into town, spend a few hours, sit on the benches and watch what's happening in the village. Some nights people they know might sit with them and talk.
When I go into town, I see people sitting and enjoying the sun and relaxing. I've seen people sitting enjoying a cup of coffee, drink or eating an ice cream.
Also if people are going to any of our restaurants and sometimes have to wait for a table, they can sit outside and go in and check every now and then. The wait doesn't seem so long.
Our town is looking better and better all the time with all the improvements.
