X'se tagħmel

On this tour, we’ll walk along part of Newtown Creek, one of the most trafficked waterways in New York City, ending up at a picturesque spot along the East River. This fascinating tour spans 1.5 miles of Greenpoint and Long Island City's waterways and byways. Along the way, expect to see six bridges, a heavily polluted Superfund site, three active rail yards, a highway that carries 32 million vehicle trips a year, and your fair share of the gritty city. Photography enthusiasts, in particular, may find this an interesting trek across an industrial and obscure section of New York City. After the walk, you'll be invited to grab a drink with the group to enjoy watching the sunset on the East River, as it lowers behind the midtown Manhattan skyline.

Hi. I’m Mitch, a member of the Atlas Obscura community.

I am the Newtown Creek Alliance’s group historian, and a member of the Working Harbor Committee’s Steering Committee. I grew up in Brooklyn and now live in Astoria, Queens. From mysterious street names to the discovery of a forgotten part of the Queensborough Bridge, I document the curiosities I find around my community at newtownpentacle.com and share these stories during my tours.
