MASterworks Explorations: Newtown Creek Nature Walk – The Municipal Art  Society of New York

Join us this week as we explore a curious corner of the city.  Located on Newtown and Whale Creeks, which  separate Queens from Brooklyn, this strange location will offer us nature walks, flower gardens,  views of Manhattan across industrial landscapes and much more. 

Yes, this is well off the beaten path!  Please check a map to make sure you know where you are going.   Below is a link to specific directions by public transpiration. Once you exit the subway you will have a 15 minute walk to the entrance to the site.  It might be a good idea to stop at a coffee shop on the way for a bathroom as there are no bathrooms on the premises.  If you have a car, you might consider driving as there is street parking in the surrounding area.
