first be aware that there is reactivity and leash frustration. They can look the same but be different. Reactivity can be a reaction to a perceived threat. Leash frustration is when you dog may want to go explore something or meet someone (like another dog) but gets frustrated when held back.
In both cases, distance is your friend. If you stay calm and stay far enough away that you pup can watch without expectation of interacting, start there. People will call that "being under threshold". Over time, days or weeks, move a little closer. Watch you pup. A little shyness is a good thing at first. They need to think about what they are looking at. Encourage them exploring new things but don't force them if you can avoid it. One day you pup might see something odd, like a statue of a person, and bark at it. If you keep it a calm non-event the next time your pup won't be bothered by it at all.
And if you aren't in a city, I'd avoid the busy intersections. Those can be overwhelming even for grown humans, never mind a young pup who can't figure out how to deal with it.
And don't worry about "proofing" anytime soon. Your pup will be going through phases and what they excel at one day they can be block heads about the next. Give your pup a chance to grow, mature, get some self control, etc before testing the limits and proofing.
