Join Mitch Waxman for a three hour exploration of the petroleum and waste transfer districts of the Newtown Creek watershed in North Brooklyn. This fascinating tour covers about three miles of the heart of the Greenpoint Oil Spill. We will be heading for the thrice damned Kosciuszko Bridge, which is scheduled for a demolition and replacement project which will be starting in 2013.
Photographers, in particular, will find this an interesting walk through a little known and quite obscure section of New York City.
Be prepared for rough terrain and possible heavy truck traffic. Dress and pack appropriately for hiking and whatever the weather may bring. Closed-toe shoes are highly recommended. Bathroom opportunities will be found only at the start of the walk.
Meetup at the corner of Kingsland and Norman Avenues in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Drivers, leave your cars in the vicinity of McGolrick Park in Greenpoint.
