Newtown Creek Bike Tour


So what does Superfund status mean? What is “black mayonnaise?” Definitely not something you want to put on your ham and cheese sandwich. Greenpoint is home to the largest land-based oil spill in U.S. history and was a dumping ground for sulphuric acid during the late 1800s. Curious about what’s going on with our creek these days? Want to know why people make such a big deal about it? Come out this Sunday to the NAG (Neighbors Allied For Good Growth) office where the Newtown Creek Bike Tour–Cruising the Queens Side begins and find out what the future holds for our beloved creek and how it got to be the mess it is today.
