Water Week

During the New School’s Water Week, in March 2011, students in Waterlogged and Restoration Ecology classes lead tours tracing the paths of three buried streams: Minetta Brook, Sun Fish Pond and Collect Pond and Stream. Along the way, the students presented their research on the history of the waterways, the impacts these streams and the surrounding geography have had on urban forms, and restoration case studies.

A PDF of the booklet they created for the tours is available to download here.

The tours ended where each stream once connected to the river.
