Subject: Newtown Creek - Guided Tour & Expert Panelists

Saturday, May 7 2016 at 11:00am - 4:00pm

Witness the incredible sights of Newtown Creek as historian Mitch Waxman
guides us through the volatile history and industrial legacy of New York's
great hidden harbor.

Extending 3.8 miles from its junction with New York's East River, the
Newtown Creek tributary was once the site of some of the darkest mills of
the industrial revolution, including rendering plants, bone blackeners and
acid factories. Plagued by a lengthy history of environmental degradation
and neglect and now home to massive multinational corporations including
ExxonMobil, BP, National Grid and Amoco, the Newtown Creek continues as a
critical industrial zone for the city of New York.

Bring your camera, as the tour will be revealing an incredible landscape
along this section of the troubled Newtown Creek Watershed.
