3. Last Frontier, an Art Gallery, Overlooks the Creek

Next door to the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment plant in a nondescript, 100-year-old industrial building is the art gallery Last Frontier. Founded in October 2015 by accomplished Norwegian artist Sol Kjøk, the art space and work studio serves as a combined work space and presentation arena for international artists across various disciplines. The building itself, which also houses Broadway Stages, actually became a Superfund site after it was discovered to be contaminated.
