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.

Thanks again to all the volunteers that came out on Saturday to Manhattan Ave Street End Park. All the trash gathering, weeding, mulching, and painting will go a long way towards improving this valuable green space along the Creek.

Major shoutout to our collaborators from @echoed_voices and @greenpoint.beer

Penny Bridge is one of the more interesting informal access points along the Creek- not just because of the views over the water but also because of the history of the site (first Creek crossing; discovery point for the #greenpointoilspill )

Part of our work to cleanup these areas is not just to create open space or improve biodiversity, but allow for education and engagement opportunities. Hopefully this newly installed signage helps achieves that.

See it for yourself. Penny Bridge is located at the very end of Meeker ave in Greenpoint, near Gardner Ave.

A welcome sight: A @nycwater Skimmer Boat out on the Creek collecting floatables from the surface waters. Marine debris remains a major issue for NYC waterways, and we generally see more trash in the Creek following rain events and high tides.

Thank you to the crew of the Shearwater for your efforts, it was well timed for our cleanup event at Manhattan Ave Street End Park yesterday!

((don’t worry the crew circled back to get the trash near shore)) ... See MoreSee Less
