Newtown Creek: Not Your Typical Tour
Thursday, Jul 28, 2011
The largest of New York City’s 14 wastewater treatment plants, Newtown Creek is in the midst of a technological and aesthetic transformation. Its stainless steel digester "eggs” dominate the local skyline to demonstrate that with care, even the most utilitarian infrastructure can be an elegant combination of engineering and art.
With the cooperation of Ennead Architects and OHNY, the Department of Environmental Protection is opening up one of our city’s unexpected architectural gems, offering a tour to the top of Newtown’s digester eggs at dusk, to experience the dramatic lighting design of the plant and of the NYC skyline.
Date: Thursday, July 28, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Location: Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
