Sunshades are being put up on the perimiter of Pier 5, seen here from the Promenade. Note also the blue parasols over the tables on the “Picnic Peninsula,” which is on the landward side of the pier. (Click on photo to enlarge; more photos and text after the jump.)

A closer view of Pier 5; note that benches are being installed facing the water.
