Mission and History

The North Brooklyn Boat Club is dedicated to enabling and advocating for human-powered boating on the waterways bordering Greenpoint/Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The organization enables local citizens to be effective stewards of the ecology and so preserve the recreation and freedom that the waterways engender.

The NBBC comprises local kayakers, canoeists, sailors, environmentalists, boatbuilders, community leaders, and activists. We are an open group and invite anyone with an interest in boating, open space, environmental education, and nautical recreation to join our public events and open meetings and to consider membership and volunteering.

Since our inaugural meeting in June 2010, we have received generous support from numerous partners and organizations and would like to formally thank the following: Council Member Steve Levin, Assemblyman Joseph Lentol, Hudson River Foundation, Broadway Stages, Open North Brooklyn Parks Alliance, City Parks Foundation, Newtown Creek Alliance, Box House Hotel, Allocco,
