The December completion date for the first phase of the East River Waterfront revamp was a little optimistic. But hey, better late than never! DNAinfo brings word that the first bit of construction to get finished, a two-block esplanade between Maiden Lane and Wall Street, will probably open in May. Reasons we like this section: the stone steps, the bar-style railing seating, and, of course, the 4,300-square-foot dog run allegedly featuring a giant sculpture of a squirrel.
