MARK YOUR CALENDARS: Newtown Creek Boat Tour

I almost forgot about this one but thankfully got a reminder from my buddy (and Chairman of the endeavor): Mitch Waxman. Despite the untimely passing of Bernard Ente, the tour guide extraordinaire of this event, the show must go on. And go on it will this upcoming May 21st. Tickets cost $60.00 per person and can be purchased by clicking here or contacting Mitch via email at: waxmanstudio (at) gmail (dot) com. I am very aware that $60.00 is a pretty hefty sum for many folks however, I speak from personal experience that you will get an eyeful (and noseful) for your money. Follows is a slide show of highlights from a tour yours truly took a few years ago. Enjoy!

New York Shitty Slide Show Du Jour: Two Feet, Two Boroughs, Three Bridges & Four Hours

As I intimated yesterday I took a four hour photo walk with an occasional contributor to the New York Shitty photo pool and full-time Greenpointer: Noah Devereaux. He was the tour guide. Where he went, I followed. Chattering a great deal of the way. The following should give you some idea of our route.

We started at Greenpoint and Manhattan Avenue at 6:00 p.m. and, almost four hours later, ended up back there. The following slide show (including the lovely, if surreal, shots of the ecological wonder that is English Kills— which grace the beginning of this post) features everything in between. Enjoy!

As always you can (and should) view these images in large format by clicking here.

New York Shitty Day Ender: The Other Superfund

This stunning image hails from Maspeth Creek English Kills and comes from krugerlive who writes:

…i have a lot more shooting to do here. matt and i were stopped about 4 times by people asking if we were turrists. i was not allowed to shoot to the left of this shot because it’s the city’s only control point of natural gas. you’d think telling me how vulnerable that spot is would be more dangerous than letting me take photos from a public road.

Noah Devereaux (who took the above photograph) opines:

This is where your waste winds up when you flush the toilet in North Brooklyn during a light rain.
