Wipe right, baby.
If you're stumped for where to take your Tinder date in the lead up to Valentine's Day, the Department of Environmental Protection has the answer.
The city's largest wastewater treatment plant opens its doors to the public for guided tours for unorthodox romantics who are looking to charm their partner with wafting odors.
The tours of the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment facility this year, scheduled for Feb. 11, will take daring couples along the path dirty water travels once it gets to the plant, and includes a stop at 120-foot-high observation deck with views of the Manhattan skyline on top of the the plant's striking, metallic, digester eggs.
In honor of the annual tour, workers at the plant have even dubbed the huge barges filled with human waste that leave the plant several times each day "love boats."
Three tours are scheduled on Feb. 11 at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Make a reservation here. They begin from the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility's welcome center at 329 Greenpoint. Ave.
