Saturday, 01. June 2019, Lemon Creek, Lemon Creek Walking Tour

Lemon Creek is one of the longest aboveground creeks in New York City, and its route cuts deeply into the history of Staten Island. Once famous for its oysters and oystermen, it was a favorite haunt of author Joseph Mitchell in the 1950s, and is now a Staten Island Bluebelt, harboring eagles, peacocks, and deer. Join writer and photographer Nathan Kensinger on a walk tracing out the lower portions of this fascinating waterway, as it flows through historic neighborhoods and protected parklands, and out to Prince’s Bay. 
Sturdy, closed-toed shoes are recommended for this walk, which will involve following footpaths over streams and through wooded environments. We will start at Amboy Road and Penton Street and end the walk at Bayview Ave. and Johnston Terrace.
This walking tour is sponsored by Council Member Joseph Borelli.
