How does a geographic divider alter our perception of space? In fall 2015, we embarked on a canoe excursion of Newtown Creek, the estuary that forms the boundary between Brooklyn and Queens. Led by writer and environmentalist Erik Baard, the tour revealed ecological challenges and fascinating infrastructure, and shed light on the boroughs’ unseen waterway that precariously flows along the line of industry and gentrification.

This event was presented in partnership with HarborLAB.
