April 9th, Newtown Creek Digester Egg Tour, 9:15 AM

On April 9th we will meet at the Visitor Center at Newtown Creek no later than 9:15, for a guided tour of the wastewater treatment facility’s anaerobic digester system!

Here is a link to the site.

After the tour we will walk around Newtown Creek a bit to soak in the mixture of nature and industry that is there.  Stay for the walk if you can.

Please try to make the tour.  I understand some of you have Accounting in the AM.  I will be glad to email your professor if that is relevant.  If you absolutely can’t miss class, I understand.

Wear closed-toed, non-high heeled shoes.

You are responsible for getting there on your own. The address is:

329 Greenpoint Avenue
Greenpoint, Brooklyn NY, 11222
(Enter at the intersection of Greenpoint Avenue and Humboldt Street.)

The best way to get there is the G train, but use hopstop or googlemaps to find a route that meets your needs.

If you are late/delayed:  email me at samantha.macbride@baruch.cuny.edu OR text/call 917-613-1789

Travel directions

Subway to the Visitor Center at Newtown Creek

Take the G train to Greenpoint Avenue. Use the Greenpoint/Manhattan Avenue exit. With the McDonald’s on your left, walk along Greenpoint Avenue one long block east and cross McGuinnes Boulevard. Continue on Greenpoint Avenue to the next traffic light and cross Provost. The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant will be on your left. Follow the fence-line and continue walking until you reach the main gate to the plant, at a traffic light on Humboldt Street. The Visitor Center at Newtown Creek will be in front of you. It is a two-story orange brick building surrounded by a garden and water sculpture.
