The Mountaintop to Tap exhibit, which records the three-week trek of a diverse group of high school students who traced New York City’s drinking water supply from its headwaters in the Catskill Mountains to Central Park, was on display at the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development’s Erpf Gallery, the Queens Museum of Art and the Sidney Public Library. Through their photographs and journal entries, as well as in a documentary film, the teenagers tell the compelling tale of their journey and the story of what it takes to deliver and protect the drinking water for 9 million New Yorkers.
