Culture on the Cheap
Greenpoint’s Nature Walk Gets Added Value!
I am attaching a few photos of the oil Mike & I saw today at the DEP Nature Walk. Last week we came across some dead crabs there including ( blue crab, white crab, horseshoe crab … ) We have photos of the dead critters. Today the amount of oil ( various types ) was horrifying. We saw loads of brown oil, frothy whitish, rainbow slicks …I have a video clip that shows the oil all along the Nature Walk steps. The oil extends toward the Kills and into Whale Creek as well. We noticed that there is pile driving going on near the Motiva site by the Pulaski Bridge as well. We included a photo of the rig. We have no idea how far down the Creek the slick extends.
Mike & I made a complaint to the DEC Hot line: 1 (800) 457-7362.
I’m happy to see that the barge that was dumped by the Kill has finally been removed. Thank you for that.

Y’all come back now, you hear!
