Untapped photographer Chuck Lau, who most recently captured the abandoned diner on 375 West Street, will be taking readers on a tour of the new Freshkills Park on Staten Island Saturday July 23rd at 1pm. Freshkills used to be the largest landfill in the world and is being converted into a park. Untapped last took the tour 2 years ago and there have been tons of development since. Spots are limited so sign up by writing on our  Facebook wall!

A great opportunity to learn more about photography (DSLR or point-and-shoot) while checking out a major urban initiative in New York City. You’ll also discover Staten Island if you haven’t been yet
