Wrapfig certainly still exists, on CTAN as
tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/other/misc/wrapfig.sty, though since
the style-file is entirely standalone -- distributed without separate
documentation -- it does look as if it's only there as part of a
larger package.

Wrapfig works rather well, in my experience.  It has a rather tricky
job to do, and it doesn't always get it exactly right, but if you
follow the advice on idiosyncracies in the documentation at the _end_
of the style file, you can get the effect you want more often than not.
Its author fairly regularly answers questions about it on comp.text.tex,
so it's still supported.

All the best,
