Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox: Tit Tours?!?
Open House New York is a little ways off (October 10-11) but once my buddy over at The Newtown Pentacle brought the following to my attention I had to pass it along. STAT:
Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
329 Greenpoint Ave/ Humboldt St, Brooklyn
Sat: 10:30 am – 3 pm
Sun: 10:30 am – 3 pm
Continuous open access, first come basis, lining up if necessary
Regular open tours, first come, first serve basis – open dialogue tours of digester eggs, Sat & Sun 11 am – 1 pm, every half hour with Greg Clawson, project manager, Polshek Architects and Jim Pynn, DEP plant superintendent.
Maximum people: 20 per tour
Building date: 2009
Architect: Polshek Partnerships
Dominating the local skyline with its stainless steel digester “eggs,” this wastewater treatment plant is the largest of the 14 NYC Department of Environmental Protection plants. The new facility is also home to a Nature Walk andVisitors Center.
Yes kids, weekend after next the Garden Spot will represent at this year’s open house by letting the people access explore her, uh, more infamous assets. I can hardly wait!
P.S.: VISITOR’S CENTER?!?
