We first noticed the bus stops popping up around the city. We liked their frameless glass design. Turns out Cemusa, an international street furniture franchise, has created not just the bus shelters but also news stands and public toilets for use throughout the city's five boroughs.

The new street furniture not only looks great, it's earth friendly. The material content of the pieces is 95 percent recyclable.

Have you noticed this sleek street furniture around town, and if so, where?
