Your correspondent has returned from vacation, and resumed his photographic rounds.
North end, Pier 1, Friday, August 14, 2009.
North end, Pier 1, Tuesday, August 25, 2009. In my previous report, I proposed a contest to name the hill that has been constructed on the north end of Pier 1, which begins near the bottom of this photo, with its sinuous route traced by a road or walkway leading up to a summit near the photo’s center. One reader, “Willowtown”, proposed calling it “Regina Ridge” in honor of Regina Myer, President of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation. Another, “Rochdalian”, suggested “Whitman Hill”. (A third advocated naming it for a Whitman poem.) I’ve decided to combine the two proposals and submit that the whole structure be named “Regina Ridge”, but that its summit be called “Whitman Peak”.
More photos and text follow the jump.
Tuesday, August 25. This little tanker truck was spraying water on what may soon be a road or walkway, perhaps in preparation for paving.
South end, Pier 1, Friday, August 14, 2009.
South end, Pier 1, Tuesday, August 25, 2009. Activity seems to be abating here, perhaps in preparation for the removal of the pier deck from the southernmost portion of Pier 1.

Pier 6, Friday, August 14, 2009.
Pier 6, Tuesday, August 25, 2009. There’s a lot going on the land near the foot of the Pier, but it’s hard to tell exactly what.
Note: Until before my vacation, I’d been photographing on Fridays and posting shortly thereafter. Henceforth, I will follow a Tuesday to Tuesday photographing regime, with my “Park Progress” posts appearing at mid-week.
