Sneak Peek at Freshkills Park in Staten Island

For the third year in a row, the Parks Department allowed visitors a look at Freshkills Park, a 2,200-acre former landfill that's being transformed into the city's second-largest green space. The "Sneak Peak" event (the title refers to the area's earthen mounds) included kayaking, bird-watching, bouldering, walking tours, kite-flying and educational workshops.
