I received this email a couple of weeks ago- how could I resist going?

The Visitor Center at Newtown Creek, 329 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn

As is usually the case with such events, local political figures and high officials of the municipality can be expected to turn up. DEP Commissioner Cas Holloway, Assemblyman Joe Lentol, and City Council Member Stephen Levin were in attendance, as were several prominent citizens and business leaders of the Greenpoint community were there as well.

The kids in the shots were Class 5-313 of the Samuel P. Dumont P.S. 31 Magnet School for the Arts and Humanities, who placed drawings in a time capsule not to be opened some in 50 years. Other items placed in the capsule included the latest infrastructure and strategic plans of the DEP, periodicals, and other City documents concerning the water system of New York City.
