Minetta Brook Walk

Urban explorer, Steve Duncan, showed 17 participants the Minetta’s 1.5-mile buried path and explained the waterway functioning both today and in the past. He pointed out the secret code on manhole covers, told what their placement means, and how different engravings indicate what lies beneath the city.

On the walk, participants could peer into ventilation holes and manhole covers to get a glimpse of the underground waterways.
