The East River Promenade is still closed below Houston Street, though amenities in that closed stretch, such as more park benches, have been added since my last report. If you stay here for any length of time you will see many joggers and bikers disappointingly staring at this fence. There is no exit here, you need to go north four blocks to get out.
