Have you seen the recent photos by Hiroyuki Nakamura of the new 1st Ave siding at 40th Street for "Yi Pin". This work was expected to be completed late May / early June 2012 and will be completed shotyly with a delay of more than 2 years...

DDC had to do some major sewer reconstruction on First Avenue.

New siding looks good:

Looks like First Avenue will get repaved soon.

Most likey Water,Gas,and Phone lines need to be moved/replaced as well.
It's never easy to replace undreground lines in NY City.
