Bklink: Deadly Creek

There was an awful accident at Newtown Creek early yesterday morning when a car plunged into the water, killing one man. "The death is under investigation, but it would seem that drowning — rather than the extreme pollution in the creek, a byproduct of decades of pollution from coal and oil refineries that opened alongside the creek in the 1860s — was the most likely cause." There have been many deaths in the creek over the years, although none related to the foul nature of the water.--CityRooom
