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

Enter the Newtown Creek at Night Raffle with a donation of $20 or more. We will select two winners, each of whom can bring up to three guests. The raffle remains open until Thursday, July 21, 10pm. The winners will be announced on Friday July 22.
