The Newtown Pentacle

The good news is that the whole Internet access thing seems to be solved for now, and your humble narrator is once more reliably online. The bad news is that I’m off to Staten Island to conduct a walking tour of the Kill Van Kull instead of doubling down and making up for lost time. Not really bad news of course, as I love doing the whole “reveal thing”, but I am really, really behind on my schedule. If you care to come along, we will be meeting up on the Staten Island side at 11, nearby the northern exit from the St. George ferry terminal, tickets are $20 per head.

Afterwards, I shall race home, or at least move as quickly as New York will allow me to. My plan is to get back to work immediately upon entering HQ. One grows tired and irritable due to this constant state of worry and despair, and looks forward to once again returning to the pure joy of researching, writing about, and photographing the myriad adventures offered within the Newtown Pentacle.

  1. My husband and I really enjoyed the Newtown Creek boat tour last weekend. We were curious to do it because we used to live on Commercial Street in Greenpoint very near Newtown Creek so we wanted to get a peak at what wilds we could see further down the creek and boy did we get an eye full!!!!! Lot’s more up in there than we had even imagined. Very informative and visually mind intriguing. My favorite thing was that brick building form the Civil War era – how is that not some kind of a landmark? I may have missed it but what was that building actually used for? I am going to do some of your future walking tours for sure. We had a great day – thanks for your efforts and for all of the information – who knew one iota of this stuff?
