Jamaica Bay

Jamaica Bay is losing marsh land at a faster rate than previously thought. The (perhaps tenuous) connection to north Brooklyn? As part of the relocation of the Newtown Creek sewage plant’s sludge barge from the East River to the Creek, the City will be filling in a portion of the Creek. This will result in a loss of wetlands at Newtown Creek, which the City proposes to remediate by creating new wetlands in Jamaica Bay.
Somehow, I don’t think that our 1,200 square feet of new wetlands is going fix Jamaica Bay. But at least Greenpoint will get a new waterfront park (and get rid of the shit barge).
