A little behind schedule, but without much fanfare, Northerly Island has opened to the public. (You be more familiar with Northerly Island under its previous name, Meigs Field.) There's not much in the 90-acre park right now (the main feature is an asphalt running track), but plans to build more (oh, so much more) on the site are already under way.
