In the News: Manhattan Star Map

••• “New sections of the long-awaited East River Waterfront Esplanade are slated to open just in time for warmer weather. The glass-walled Maiden Lane pavilion, which sits underneath the FDR Drive at Maiden Lane and South Street and will feature a restaurant run by Merchants Hospitality, should be ready by the summer [….] Also, a piece of the riverfront pathway that stretches from the Battery Maritime Building to Wall Street is slated for an April opening, while another small portion linking Fulton Street to Pier 15 should be completed by Memorial Day [….] On Pier 15, which offers sweeping views of Lower Manhattan, two glass-encased pavilions are also opening soon. One will house a cafe, launching by Memorial Day, and another will be home to a maritime education center, slated to begin operating in July.” —DNAinfo

••• “Despite what is now a known risk of flooding, the Bloomberg administration and the 9/11 memorial foundation still intend to place the unidentified remains of World Trade Center victims at the bedrock level of the National September 11 Memorial Museum, as they have long planned to do. […] They also said that the safety of the remains can be guaranteed.” As you might expect, however, “a group of 17 family members wants to survey all the next of kin, in the belief that most would prefer a different resting place for what may—or may not—be the remains of their relatives.” —New York Times

••• Downtown Lunch checks out the Chipotle alternative Sabor de Mexico (which recently opened another outpost on Park Place).

••• Rentenna has a New York City star map. I’m pretty dense about this stuff, but I thought Mariah Carey lives on Church, not Broadway, and I had no idea that Jon Stewart and Jeremy Piven lived together. And of course, if we wanted, we could certainly come up with a much richer map than this…. (via Curbed)
