The North Brooklyn Boat Club has had another wonderful year in the Broadway Stages Boatyard. There have been almost 200 different paddle trips, some as short as down to Bushwick Inlet and some as long and adventurous as our annual circumnavigation of Manhattan. Hundreds of children and other learners have been given access to what the waters of NYC have to teach at out environmental-education events, and we have also invited our neighbors to experience the lurking horror beneath the waters! We also reached out to other community organizations to extend a network of advocacy and action, and we extended our own reach by offering public paddling from a second location for the first time.

And all these things are possible only because of our members. Indeed, NBBC exists only through its members. And the Annual Meeting is every member’s chance to find out about what has gone on all year and talk about what the future holds. Come add your voice to the conversation.

Hope to see you there!

Iä! Iä! Cthulhu Canoe! Happy Halloween from NBBC

To all the member-volunteers and performers who made it happen, to all our guests, to all our pumpkins, and to all those restless spirits that haunt Newtown Creek, happy Halloween from North Brooklyn Boat Club!

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Iä! Iä! Cthulhu Canoe!

Haunted Paddle 2017: Cthulhu Canoe!

The Dark is rising in Newtown Creek … who knows what horrors lurk below its ancient waters …?

But you can come find out on October 28 at NBBC’s Haunted Paddle 2017!

North Brooklyn Boat Club Haunted Paddle 2017: Cthulhu Canoe! October 28, 2017, $30, 7:00-11:00 PM, 51 Ash St., Brooklyn, NY

Let our dark and silent (ACA-certified) guides take you on a terrifying twenty-minute tour of the starkly beautiful postindustrial waters of Newtown Creek. Over the dark surface of this time-haunted stream, strange chants echo, and those who dwell here have changed with the passing of forgotten years. As your boat glides beneath the rusted relics of bygone industry, you’ll see the twisted devotees of ancient powers, older than humanity, uncaring, and strange.

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

Iä! Iä! Cthulhu Canoe!

All are welcome to witness the horrors of the deep! You won’t find anything this Halloween that’s more superfun(d) than this! Each $30 canoe ride ticket includes a drink ticket to be used after your trip. You’ll need it.

For those too fearful to ply the waters, we’ll have a party on land with a bonfire, drinks, and food.

The party is free to attend and requires no RSVP, but haunted canoe ride tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets sell out fast, so grab yours soon! Tickets are on sale now!
