Couples looking for a unique way to spend Valentine’s Day in New York City should look no further than the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
According to the New York Daily News, the sewer treatment plant will be offering special Valentine’s tours, complete with complimentary Hershey’s chocolate on Tuesday morning.
Why would anyone be interested in such a tour on Valentine’s Day? “It’s a unique date, and one they’ll never forget,” plant superintendent Jim Pynn told the paper.
Aside from a wild story and a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of New York City’s plumbing, tour groups will also get some spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.
