Check out PBS’s Channel 13 reporting on the Newtown Creek from December of 2008.

The hippies at Mother Jones posted this page, with a timeline of the oil industry on the creek.

Treehugger has a story about the Newtown Pippin here

The Greater Astoria Historical Society, in the midst of rebuilding their website, have orphaned the archives of the Long Island City Daily Star- click here. The Newtown Pentacle NEEDS to acknowledge the work of these folks, and recommend their outstanding series of books- especially “the Queensboro Bridge” and “Long Island City”.
