Newtown Creek Bike Tour 

  • Manhattan Avenue Street End Park (map)

Join Newtown Creek Alliance for a guided tour to see and discuss ecological and industrial activity near and along the Newtown Creek shoreline. Once a vast title wetland, the Creek quickly became one of the busiest waterways in the country, leaving a significant legacy of environmental destruction and contamination, leading to the ultimate designation as a federal superfund. However, improvements are underway and the past 2 decades have seen improvements to water quality and with it a returning ecology where fish, crabs, and a plethora of shorebirds now exist amongst the challenging conditions. The tour will begin at Manhattan Avenue Street End Park and end at the green roof. RSVP here.
