Take a Hike


Ever wondered about the industrial history of Brooklyn and Queens? Or what’s up with Newtown Creek? Or, whether you can really take a hike in Brooklyn? Meet up at the corner of Grand Street and Morgan Avenue for an Obscura Society NYC walk through some of the outer boroughs’ most interesting and desolate industrial zones with tour guide Mitch Waxman of the Newtown Creek Alliance. The tour promises many surprises, including the skeleton of a 19th-century highway, a colonial pathway, two movable bridges and lunch at the former Clinton Diner in Maspeth. You know, the one in Goodfellas where Jimmy asks Henry to go down and do a hit with Anthony in Florida. Eat like a gangster–the diner is now named Goodfellas after the film–your $30  ticket includes the cost of lunch.
