Flushing Creek Bike Tour

Flushing Creek Bike Tour

~Sunday, September 9, 10am-12pm~

Sergey Kadinsky, author of Hidden Waters of New York City, will lead this ride. Join Sergey, NYC H2O, Guardians of Flushing Bay, Empire Dragon Boat Team and Friends of Flushing Creek on a

bike tour along this waterway that explores Flushing Creek from its source to its mouth.

Flushing Creek is an urban waterway hidden in plain sight that runs between two highways through the heart of the largest park in Queens. The creek originates in the midst of a complex network of

roads. It first expands into two lakes before being confined in an underground culvert. It then re-emerges in Willets Point from where it eventually empties into Flushing Bay.

This is the stream that flowed past the Valley of Ashes in The Great Gatsby. Arguably, it is the centerpiece of Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the site that hosted two World’s Fairs.

Flushing Bay and Creek have the largest number of combined sewer overflow (CSO) outfalls in the city.Billions of gallons of untreated sewage and stormwater are discharged into these waterbodies

every year. The future of Flushing Creek is the subject of controversy. Come learn about why it deserves our advocacy.

This event requires advance registration

Grandma’s remedies. Simple, Potent Remedies that always magically heal ailments. Herbs and spices have been used since ancient times to enhance general health and well being. Returning to our roots with whole foods and healing herbs is acquiring growing importance in our modern lives. Often times we think of our spices as merely tools in our cooking to bring out certain flavors in foods. For thousands of years spices have been used as medicine in many families and particularly in Ayurveda. Spicing our foods becomes our first line of defense, and savvy spicing with intent becomes medicine, as we learn how to balance our imbalances at the root of all disorders and diseases – the digestion and elimination of food, thoughts and emotions! Spices that were used as folk remedies are also part of the material medica of ancient medical texts of India, China and Tibet.
