The folks at Thirteen.org have put together another amazing City Concealed video, this time focusing their lens on the Ridgewood Reservoir, which sits on the Brooklyn-Queens border (wherever that may be). They write: "When we first visited the reservoir with Rob Jett, a birder and local activist, I was struck by the variety of habitat. Aside from the center water body, there were hardwood trees, soggy wetlands, some sort of bamboo, grasses, and a host of other plant clusters." Learn more about its current state, and its history, in the below video.
The reservoir is on the list of PLANYC projects, and the Parks Department is looking to find a new and creative use for it; as of November 5th, a wetlands designation was still pending.
