Wastewater plant in NY offers special Valentine's Day tour

New York , Sat, 11 Feb 2012 ANI

New York, Feb 11 (ANI): New Yorkers have an option of a highly unusual place they can take their Valentine this year - the Newtown Creek Wastewater Plant.


The Department of Environmental Protection is offering a Valentine's morning tour of the city's Newtown Creek Wastewater treatment plant.


"It's a unique date, and one they'll never forget," the New York Daily News quoted plant superintendent Jim Pynn as saying.


Pynn hosts public tours every month, but in honour of the holiday, visitors will get a special candy treat.


"Couples and singles and children and old folks - whoever shows up is welcome to a Hershey kiss," he said.


Guests will be taken through the sewage plant's egg-shaped digesters, which act like a human stomach and break down the noxious waste into harmless sludge and gas.


"New York is so unique, and we have so many secrets. This is a pretty neat secret, and I think it's a great conversation," Pynn said.


"Just imagine going home and saying, 'Where did he take me on Valentine's Day? I went to see the digester eggs in Greenpoint, Brooklyn".


The superintendent says that the egg-shaped contraptions are "giving Brooklyn a new skyline from the Manhattan viewpoint" and offer a great view from the top.


"There's a lot of interest in the infrastructure of New York City, but what makes Newtown Creek unique is the architectural prowess," he said. (ANI)
