There is a lot of stuff going on the City, and we can't write about it all. Here are some interesting things some of our friends have written up lately.

These Gorgeous New Renderings Show the Forthcoming East River Esplanade in Midtown

From the NYC Mayor's Office:

Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced a major investment in closing the largest gap in the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway, and an administration-wide push underway to complete the vision of a contiguous 32-mile waterfront pedestrian promenade and bicycling path around the whole of Manhattan. […] In his budget to be announced Wednesday, the Mayor will dedicate $100 million in City capital to significantly narrow the Greenway’s largest gap. The New York City Economic Development Corporation will construct a new esplanade in the East River between East 61st Street and East 53rd Street. Design will begin this year and construction will commence in 2019, with completion expected in 2022.
