About Newtown Creek: a professor of aesthetics once told me that you “can’t have the beautiful without the ugly”. I thought I agreed with him until today. Newtown Creek has a beauty all its own. So peaceful on the boat. Different perspective of Lower Manhattan. Beautiful Brooklyn Industrial spaces. “Valuable real estate if cleaned up”. I hope it stays undeveloped. Will look forward to how the land is rezoned in future years. I want to see bridge footprints turned into parks all over the country.
