Freshkills, Thoreau and the Sanitation Worker

Sunday, July 31, 1:00m.  Meet at the Eltingville Transit Center, Richmond Ave & Arthur Kill Road, SINY 10309.  (Plenty of free parking.  We will board a van for the short ride into Freshkills Park.)

FREE, BUT RESERVATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL – LIMITED SPACE!  Please RSVP at this link: http://freshkillspark.org/programs/staten-island-outloud-freshkills-thoreau-sanitation-worker    When you  RSVP, Freshkills Park will send you a confirmation message, with further info. Thanks!

Discover the oral history of people who worked at the old Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island, for the NYC Dept of Sanitation.  They took pride in their hard work; did they know the landfill would one day become a park?  Their oral histories are thoughtful, insightful and poetic.  They pair beautifully with the writing of 19th century naturalist and philosopher Henry David Thoreau, who himself spent time on Staten Island.

Join us as we tour Freshkills Park, NYC’s largest and newest park.  It dwarfs Central Park, and is studied worldwide a global model for reclamation and creative adaptation.

Rain or shine.  We’ll tour the park in a comfy van, then we’ll explore Thoreau and an unusual aspect of local oral history in the Freshkills Visitors’ Center.

Free, but you must RSVP, due to space limitations.  To reserve your spot, visit  http://freshkillspark.org/programs/staten-island-outloud-freshkills-thoreau-sanitation-worker
