A Field Guide to Whale Creek is a self-guided audio tour and field guide pamphlet (available for download at www.newtowncreekfieldguide.com). These tools add insights to the strange beauty of the post-natural landscape accessible via the Newtown Creek Nature Walk, designed by George Trakas. You can reach the site in Greenpoint, Brooklyn by G train, bicycle or car. Just look for the enormous digester eggs belonging to the DEP’s Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.

A NOTE TO THE CURIOUS: Please remember that Newtown Creek is Superfund site. See, hear, smell, bike, walk, but do not taste or touch! Do not consume fish or shellfish, or collect sediment from the water.
