Everyone agrees the couch is unique. The stylish jade-green, 60-foot-long supersofa was built by Marco Fine Furniture of San Francisco, whose other clients include Leona Helmsley, Donald Trump and the Sultan of Brunei.

It was paid for from the $600,000 public art budget the city was required to spend on the $53.5 million jail. Under a 1969 city ordinance, as much as 2 percent of the cost of new buildings must be spent on art accoutrements.
