Boatbuilding Project, Sundays this Spring!

Join NBBC this Spring to help out with our first complete boat build project.

All members are welcome to drop in and lend a hand, no experience required. Or just stop by come and check out what’s going on. We will be making a 14′ rowboat to replace our current aluminum skiff used for environmental projects run in conjunction with Newtown Creek Alliance and LaGuardia Community College.

We will be working on the boat April, May and June. Work schedules vary; if interested in helping please email pbeckwith (at) No experience needed.


The New Explorers

Kris Timken will present her book, The New Explorers at the North Brooklyn Boat Club on Sunday, April 3, 12:30 to 2:30pm.
The New Explorers examines encounters with the American landscape by twelve contemporary female artist-adventurers.  Kris traveled across the country to talk with these women about their projects as part of her own quest to understand how artists make meaning in landscape. One of the artists is Marie Lorenz whose Tide and Current Taxi ( is not only a legendary artwork in/about our waterways but, with Marie at the oars, will also ferry the author to the boatyard!
There will be a discussion, book signing and the typical high-end victuals you’ve come to expect from the boatyard hard by the Pulaski Bridge. You can RSVP here.
