Narrated by Susan Sarandon

For more than a century, Jamaica Bay is where New Yorkers put the things they didn’t want. Garbage. Sewage. Factories you could smell for miles. It’s the largest open space in New York – nearly 30 times the size of Central Park.

After a long fight, Jamaica Bay is cleaner now than it has been in generations. Yet there is still a long way to go. SAVING JAMAICA BAY tells the untold story of this unique place and of local residents transformed into urban environmentalists now struggling to preserve this priceless resource…and their way of life.
