i doubt it. not sure how hold that picture is, but i saw an image where stone edges had metal 'clips' on the corners to prevent skateboarding. or maybe they have security roaming like the SAM Sculpture Park here in seattle.

as for the extensions, i think they were added for additional seating (after all, this is new york) and is missing a back rest for 2 reasons

a) cutting costs on benches by removing back rests.

b) gives visitors a better opportunity to take a closer look at the plants/mini habitats being incorporated into the park.
