East River Waterfront Update

Longtime readers know that I am particularly interested in landscapes, specifically the relationships we have with our environments and the ways they shape us while we shape them. The shoreline around New York City has changed since the early settlers established the colony here, expanding to meet our harbor needs. Over the last year, I've been watching development of the East River Waterfront unfold. It's time for another update (you can view previous updates here, here, here, and here).

Here's a look at where we are today:

Another hole in the ground.

Support pilings.

Construction materials.

Through the fence.
