August 25, 2012, 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM: Join Newtown Creek Alliance Historian Mitch Waxman for an intense walking tour through the toxic hellscape of Newtown Creek.
This Saturday, Mitch Waxman will be leading a 3-hour walk on the wild side through the petroleum and waste transfer districts of the Newtown Creek watershed in North Brooklyn. Heavily industrialized, the tour pierces the heart of the Greenpoint Oil Spill as well as the home territory of several heavy industries and waste transfer stations. It will also include a crossing the thrice-damned Kosciuszko Bridge, which is scheduled for a demolition and replacement project starting next year.
Details and tickets ($25) here.
