Greenpoint sewage plant offers unusual Valentine's Day treat

While many couples are heading to Valentine's Day dinners tonight, a Brooklyn sewage plant is offering loved ones a much different experience.

It may not smell like roses, but the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Greenpoint is giving special tours today in an effort to get closer to the community. Officials say its an opportunity for residents to get to know what's in their own backyard.

Everyone that takes the tour will also walk away with a Hershey kiss.
