About this event

Since 2002, the Newtown Creek Alliance (NCA) has served as the voice of Newtown Creek; working with community members, local businesses, environmental organizations, and agencies to promote awareness, remediation, access, resilient businesses, and ecological improvements for our local waterway and upland communities. At this year’s Tidal Toast, we will celebrate NCA’s two decades of work by raising a glass to all of NCA's friends, supporters, and partners who enable us to restore, reveal, and revitalize Newtown Creek.

In celebration of our 20 years, we are honoring three distinct individuals whose extensive contributions have advanced cleanup, connection, and care of our beloved Newtown Creek:

Captain John Lipscomb: Restore Award

John is the Riverkeeper Boat Captain who has kept a watchful eye on the waterway since NCA's inception in 2002. He has been a tireless advocate and defender of the waterway, uncovering historic and active pollution sources along the Creek.

Christine Holowacz: Revitalize Award

One of the NCA founders, Christine has been heavily involved in Greenpoint and served as community liaison on two of the largest Creek based projects in the past 20 years: the Newtown Creek Treatment Plant and the Kosciuszko Bridge project.

Mitch Waxman: Reveal Award

NCA's long time historian and a Queens based community activist - Mitch has extensively documented the state of the Creek and introduced thousands of NYers to the waterway, it's history and current role in the functioning of the City, through his numerous illustrative and captivating tours.

This year, we are excited to partner with Colossal Media, who will be generously hosting the Tidal Toast event at their Creek-side facility on Metropolitan Avenue. In addition to a spacious interior, this unique location also offers an outdoor section overlooking the English Kills tributary of Newtown Creek.

*Volunteers Needed* No NCA event would be possible without the contribution of our dedicated volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering at the event, please fill out this form.
