You beat me to the punch! Terrific idea. I’d like to make these informal visits a regular thing over the course of the semester. I will not be able to go tomorrow, but I will likely be able to visit the following Friday (2.18) and will let you know later today. If that’s the case, those who interested in this site can choose which Friday better suits their schedule, and we can gather in a couple different groups. Jessica

And whether it’s this Friday or next, we’ll also want to check out the quarter-mile nature walk designed by artist George Trakas – here’s a great read w/video on Urban Omnibus: http://urbanomnibus.net/2009/03/george-trakas-at-the-waters-edge-newtown-creek/.

There’s a fountain somewhere by Vito Acconci as well.

What about meeting at the visitor center tomorrow at
12pm? Does that work for anyone? And yes, nature walk sounds great!

Hiya- so I know we talked about this yesterday but I actually have a meeting that will probably go until about 1:30. Do you know if these are specific meeting times at the plant or is it open all day? If not I think the idea of groups going both Fridays is a great idea!
