Avenue D Pump Station

As part of East Village Today's effort to bring you pictures of the East Village from where no other blogger dares to go, I present the Avenue D Pump Station!

Avenue D Pump Station.

This is also known as the 13th Street Pump Station or, more commonly, the Manhattan Pump Station.

The Manhattan Pump Station provides the Newtown Creek Water Pollution Control Plant with more than half of its flow, 155 million gallons per day for treatment.  Betcha didn't know that!

There are two High Water Mark signs, commemorating the flooding brought by Hurricane Sandy. The first is on East 13th Street:

The other is on Avenue D:

The East Village isn't all artists and scoundrels!
