My favorite Central Park bench plaques

I've always thought it was genius of the management of Central Park to allow people to adopt a bench. A lot of people do it to immortalize a loved one or profess their undying love for their spouse. Then again, there are also those who do it just because they can--and, it does not come cheap. Adopting a bench costs around US$8,000. That's almost 4 months worth of NY apartment living for the average joe!

Most of the time, people just place the usual dedications such as, 'In loving memory of', or 'I love you' on the plaques but I love the ones that obviously made an effort to make their bench stand out. Here are some of my favorites that I've seen and curated from the internet.
