Taste of Science Festival | Waters of NYC
New York is a city of over 8.5 million people and plenty of concrete. But travel anywhere within city limits, and you’re likely to find water. Tonight’s event will explore what’s in the waters of our city. Centuries of industrial activity along the Newtown Creek have dramatically altered this Superfund site which separates Western Brooklyn and Queens. Learn about the current efforts to address pollution and restore life to the Creek with citizen scientist Willis Elkins of the Newtown Creek Alliance. The famous New York water is what makes the pizza and bagels so good, they say. But what’s really in our drinking water and how does it affect our bodies? Explore these questions and more with Dr. Sasan Rabieh of NYU’s Department of Biomaterials.
