I was just quietly celebrating the closing up of an East Houston Street trench that they have been noisily working on for the past two months. Today they are resuming the torture on the other side of the street. This dotted line extends between Avenue A and Avenue B. Not only does this construction annoy during the day with construction noise, it continues into the night with idiots honking their horns because of the congestion.
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.
