The Newtown Pentacle

A few interesting photos adorn today’s posting, progeny of the prodigious amount of exploration a humble narrator has been occupied with for the last couple of weeks. There are so many great things “in the works” which haven’t been publicly announced yet, and which I’m bursting at the seams to tell you about, that I’m all a twitter.

2012 promises to be one of the great years for you to see and experience the Newtown Creek for yourself, as the early stages of several walking and boat tours are in the works.

In the last two weeks, I’ve walked the entire creek in pursuance of one of these projects, which will be finalized and made public quite soon. I’ve worn out a pair of shoes, and shot literally thousands of photos for this project. My path has carried me from Bushwick to Long Island City and Greenpoint to Maspeth.

I’ve dodged trucks and trains, violated perhaps three separate sets of legal restrictions, and encountered a vast coterie of characters both malign and inspirational.

Within the next couple of weeks, announcements of many, many public events will begin. Meanwhile, the concrete devastations of Western Queens and the oil choked sands of North Brooklyn have been catalogued and categorized, concatenated and containerized.

It’s going to be a great summer.

  1. DEAR HUMBLE NARRATOR

    i HOPE YOU NEVER DISCONTINUE YOUR QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE OF OUR “HUMBLE” NEIGHBORHOODS … READING YOUR BLURBS IS SO ENJOYABLE AND MY VOCABULARY
    IS INCREASING BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS! (WHAT DOES THAT MEAN WHEN YOU DISSECT IT.)
    I JUST TURNED 92. HEAVEN WON’T BE ABLE TO TOLERATE ME WHEN I ARRIVE WITH ALL THE KNOWLEDGE I’VE GLEANED FROM FOLLOWING YOUR POSTS.
    THANK YOU/
