    Richard Melnick, of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, will conduct a walking tour of the Borden Avenue Bridge and surrounding Long Island City area.

    Co-host will be the Newtown Creek Alliance.

    The Borden Avenue Bridge is a unique retractile bridge, sliding along tracks to allow the bridge to move and open the shipping channel known as Dutch Kills, leading to Newtown Creek and the East River.

    Mr. Melnick will transform the steel, brick and mortar into a fascinating 90 minute adventure.
