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.

Over the past year NCA and the office of Councilmember Levin have been working with various city and state agencies to remove a giant pile of abandoned concrete pipes at the end of Meeker ave in Greenpoint. The pipes have acted as mosquito breeding grounds and attracted additional dumping over the years. Despite our efforts and 311 calls from local security officers, it has been a slow process and unable to identify the origins of the debris it has remained in place.

A few weeks ago ExxonMobil and their contractors (who maintain a groundwater recovery system at the street end) pitched in to resolve the issue- bringing in equipment and manpower to breakup and dispose of the derelict materials.

It may seem like a small gesture given the larger environmental burdens facing #newtowncreek - but every effort to cleanup informal areas like this are important. This historic bridge crossing offers a small oasis within a heavy industrial area, with vegetation, seating and a unique view of the city. We are always grateful to industrial partners, elected officials and local workers alike who do what they can to cleanup the Creek.
