The North Brooklyn Boat Club is truly a diamond in the rough of the polluted Newtown Creek waterway, bringing folks in our community together not only for boating and paddling but also environmental advocacy. For $40 a year you can become a member of the boat club, learn how to navigate Newtown Creek via kayak, and get access to paddling events, Boat Club parties and their shared upstate cabin. This Saturday, May 26th (from 1-6pm) is the Club’s annual opening day bash, where everyone is invited to join trained NBBC guides for free short canoe trips on Newtown Creek and out toward the East River, with stunning views of Manhattan. And you’ll be able to party on the shore with food and drinks while gathering around the fire pit. Their parties are always a fun time, and you can get to know your neighbors while taking in a unique view of the city.
