Because the put-in in Greenpoint sits closer to the midway point of Newtown Creek than either of its ends, you must decide quickly which way to head after you launch. Look to the west, though, as you fl oat out into the middle of the creek, and the incredible view of the Manhattan skyline will likely make that decision for you. Unfortunately, you must fi rst paddle past a truck yard, a warehouse, a parking lot, a naturalgas refi nery, and a dozen other buildings before you make it to the creek’s mouth at the East River.
