Underwater New York
Artists and storytellers have long drawn inspiration from New York’s cityscape. But under the waters that define our islands is another landscape entirely, every bit as gritty and urgent, as lonely and cluttered, as deadly, nonsequitous, singular and siren as the City itself.
Meet Nicki Pombier Berger and Helen Georgas, editors at Underwater New York, a digital journal of writing, art, and music inspired by the waterways that surround New York City and the objects submerged within them. They will lead an exploration and residency at Coney Island Creek. Described as a onetime “rumrunner’s haven and a dumping ground for everything from bodies to old cars” the creek continues to hold the wreckage and memories of New York’s shipping history, including a half-submerged homemade submarine, and the timbers of ancient whalers.
Come prepared to explore and create. Bring sturdy shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
