Mark you calendars: Q’Stoner writer Mitch Waxman is leading a walking tour through the depths of Dutch Kills on Saturday, June 7th. Here are details on the tour, straight from the Atlas Obscura website:
A central maritime artery of Long Island City, Dutch Kills is surrounded by hundreds of factory buildings, titan rail yards, and crossed by century old bridges – and it’s found just a few blocks away from Queens Plaza. During this three hour tour, we will cover three miles of Brooklyn and Queens to see where the industrial revolution actually happened. Bring your camera, as the tour will be revealing an incredible landscape along this section of the troubled Newtown Creek Watershed.
We can guarantee that this one is going to be fun. The tour begins prompty at 11 am in Long Island City and lasts until 2 pm. Tickets, which you can purchase here, cost $20.
