Newtown Creek – Cradle of Creativity

Where 350 Years of New York Enterprise and Innovation Were Born

With Bob Singleton

Newtown Creek is so much more than 20th industry, post industry, and 21st century development. The earliest elements of the venturesome New York spirit were launched on its banks – you could stand at its tributary at Queens Plaza and see New York City history from earliest to the present time – no other place in NYC has that dimension. Registration is now closed.
