In our business it always pays to keep a close eye on the Williamsburg waterfront, but ever since the Lower East Side's man-made mountain got hauled off, we've lacked a good vantage point. No longer, as the prime place for perusal is the recently reopened East River Park Promenade just north of Houston Street, a ribbon of waterfront renewal offering front row seats of 184 Kent, the two Northside Piers towers, Edge and all the other nabe favorites, not to mention Williamsburg's own little patch of waterfront green. A cross-river stare down seems imminent. Can't we all just get along?
