Looks like the concrete has been poured for new pedestrian refuges on First Avenue in the 60s.

Courtesy of Flickr user TNoble2008, who reports that the construction work extends up to 70th Street, here are some more shots of the progress on the Upper East Side's first protected bike lane. Apparently the markings and refuges aren't finished yet but some blocks are already rideable.
