VALENTINE’S DAY: The V-Day Sewage Plant Tour Back by Popular Demand
Last year’s Valentine's Day tours of the Newtown Creek sewage treatment plant, which sits on one of the most disgusting waterways in the country, was such a hit that they’re throwing their doors open again this year.
Highlights include the plant's giant egg-shaped “digesters,” which break down nasty waste into harmless sludge and gas.
