First Part of Revamped East River Waterfront Opening Soon

New, 2 comments

After some time spent left in the dust of the Hudson River waterfront and Brooklyn Bridge Park revamps, the East River Waterfront had had enough. Phase 1 of the East Side's waterfront redo kicked off last summer, with work on piers 15 and 35. The first bit of that work will finish up at the end of the year, and a two-block section between Maiden Lane and Wall Street will open to the public. DNAinfo took a tour and reveals some of the highlights, including a series of stone steps leading to the water, bar-style seating along the railing, and a 4,300-square-foot dog run with a giant sculpture of a squirrel, for dogs who just don't get excited about hexagonal pavers.
