Newtown Creek Vision Plan

Over the past year, NCA worked closely with our partners at Riverkeeper and Perkins+Will to create the Newtown Creek Vision plan, a 150 page report chronicling priority issues and 85 proposed projects to address Remediation, Restoration, Recreation and Resilience. The report builds upon decades of planning and visioning efforts by numerous community members and organizations; framing ideas in the wake of upcoming Superfund remediation and Clean Water improvements. We look forward to continuing these planning conversations with local residents, businesses, agencies and elected officials.

From online educational programming to hands-on restoration projects, NCA has worked tirelessly during this unprecedented year to further our Reveal, Restore, Revitalize mission.

With massive agency budget cuts and lengthy cleanup timelines, the need for grassroots advocacy and initiative to better protect and connect the Newtown Creek communities has never been greater.

The end of Apollo street (Greenpoint) is once again a mess. If anyone wants to lend a hand today (saturday) or tomorrow (sunday) swing on by. We will leave contractor bags tied to the fence, just bring your own gloves and leave full bags by the fire hydrant and DSNY will come retrieve them next week.

One small way to keep trash out of the Creek and discourage future dumping.

Use 150 Apollo street for an address in Google to find the spot. ... See MoreSee Less
