When we first started patrolling here in 2002 we saw NO ONE – ever. Then came the Newtown Creek Alliance, the Exxon Case and others enforcements, then media and public attention. Now there is a growing public constituency supporting the Creek. I was amazed to see the change last May when a bunch of Newtown’s fans were out for paddling, a picnic and time together by the Creek they have decided to protect and restore. The progress since 2002 is amazing.
