We are nearing the terminus of Newtown Creek.  The creek is very narrow and isn't very deep in this area.



The creek is highly polluted, as the green murkiness of the water shows.  Who knows what kind of garbage is floating in the water at this location, and who knows if it will ever be cleaned-up.



The shoreline at the terminus of Newtown Creek.  A mixture of chemicals float on the water's surface.  Garbage is strewn across the shore.



A factory resides next to the creek.



An old railroad spur meanders its way through the factories in the area.  This spur was used for railroad freight traffic, and it has a connection to the Montauk Branch.



Another portion of the railroad spur, as it passes next to the sides of some of the factories in the area.
