Newtown Creek Nature Walk

New York
Learn more


Visitors can traverse a hidden waterfront in north Brooklyn. The nature walk navigates a thin strip of shoreline between two toxic sites in Greenpoint. It is situated behind the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, the largest wastewater facility in New York City, a 53-acre complex that processes raw sewage from a million residents. Sculptures line the entire nature walk, guiding intrepid visitors through an adventurous public artwork that explores the histories of the creek and the universe. Here you can contemplate a curated collection of native plant species and simultaneously reflect on the ramifications of centuries of industrial pollution. The vistas can be inspiring, even while filled with contamination.
