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.

The #RiverkeeperSweep was a major success at the Borden ave street end this year!

Volunteers removed hundreds of pounds of trash, cleared paths to the water and helped manage overgrown invasive species. What a unique access spot; thanks to everyone who lended a hand!

A rare sighting on the Creek during last week’s water quality patrol: An American Bittern basking on the banks near the #plankroad site in #Maspeth

This wading bird is a member of the heron family and was probably on its way south during its annual autumn migration to a warmer climate. They often utilize this upright pose to blend into reedy backgrounds like this vegetated stretch of the Creek.

Safe travels friend; hope you didn’t eat too many contaminated fish while visiting!
