Creek Life: Open Hours at NBBC

Shaped by the waters of NYC: NBBC Open Hours!

Come to the NBBC Broadway Stages Boatyard at 51 Ash Street most Tuesday evenings during the paddling season (May through October) for open hours. The Ed Shed will be open; come look at plankton in our microscope, learn about our composting system, paint a sign, or just hang out and watch the water go by in Newtown Creek.

For more information or to collaborate on an Open Hours event or find the volunteering opportunity that’s best for you, please contact Lena at

These events are open to the public. We want to welcome you to come learn more about the mission and volunteering opportunities of your community boat club.

As part of the Creek Life series, we are inaugurating a weekly paddle-trip series on Newtown Creek. The trips are open to the public for a $5 donation. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
