East River Esplanade at Pier 35 Gets New Seating Arrangements
A slew of new seating options is now available along the East River Esplanade by the entrance to Pier 35. Wood-and-steel benches are currently being installed at the perimeter railing, facing the Brooklyn side. Part of the exercise pitch was also seized for this purpose.
Pier 35, meanwhile, isn’t much closer to delivery, despite some notable progress over the last several months.
You’ll recall that the waterfront project was pretty much delivered to the community DOA. Several setbacks, most attributed to the so-called screenwall, contributed to frequent delays that pushed back the completion date. Nevertheless, the most updated target opening is “fall 2018.”
Once complete, the skateboarders will have a day, for sure.
