Filmmaker Brian Walsh has made a movie about Bushwick Creek and what lies beneath. The movie was based in part (or maybe inspired by is a better phrase) a blog post I wrote over four years ago, and which was, in turn, inspired by Bob Guskind’s reporting on the “Roebling Oil Field”.
Brian’s film is posted in five parts – part 1 is shown here, but go watch the rest. It is well done, and an interesting – and eye-opening – look at the environmental legacy of North Brooklyn.
UPDATE: Original video link was missing sound for the first few seconds. Fixed.
