Celebrate the Book Launch of ‘The Hidden Waters of New York City’
with author Sergey Kadinsky
A HISTORY AND GUIDE TO 101 FORGOTTEN LAKES, PONDS, CREEKS, AND STREAMS IN THE FIVE BOROUGHS...
... followed by a book signing by the author.
This guide to the forgotten waterways hidden throughout the five boroughs goes beneath the asphalt streets of Manhattan where creeks and streams once flowed freely.
The remnants of these once-pristine waterways are all over the Big Apple, hidden in plain sight.
Hidden Waters of New York City offers a glimpse at the big city’s forgotten past and ever-changing present, including:
Minetta Brook, which ran through today’s Greenwich Village
Collect Pond in the Financial District, the city’s first water source
Newtown Creek, separating Brooklyn and Queens
Bronx River, still a hotspot for urban canoeing and hiking
These programs are supported by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
Additional support provided by the membership of the Greater Astoria Historical Society.
