When you see the network reporters broadcasting Joe Biden items from Wilmington, Delaware, watch the background. If you see a waterfront scene with a city skyline in the background, they are at the Riverfront.
I spent some time there last week as the sun was going down, and caught up on the latest developments in this area with 3 hotels (built in the last few years), a convention center, restaurants, riverfront walk, nature center, Delaware Children's Museum, condos, apartments, a new bridge from the south end that is lit at night, and the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Amtrak station.
There are a couple of old gussied-up cranes from when this was a big shipbuilding area starting around WWI. But right next to the cranes were 4 white tents, 3 of them sealed against the weather. I could hear one of the TV stations broadcasting news in one of them, right next to the riverfront. I had noticed that even before the election, some of the reporters had chosen to set up where there was a view of the Christina River and the skyline of downtown Wilmington. So now it looks like they have claimed their own little spots with the "best view."
A good reason to visit this area around dinner time is Ubon Thai, home of spicy cuisine and the giant Yai Rolls, a type of eggroll filled with veggies and turkey that is "to die for." Now they have only take-out and tables set on the patio with a view of the river. Timothy's with their great burgers and salads is right next door. Here you see a couple strolling through the crane area towards the restaurants. And to think that this area was once industrial and mostly deserted before recent revitalization!
