DNAinfo: New Boathouse On Tap for Newtown Creek Kayakers

“Boating on Newtown Creek will soon be as simple as showing up to the shore. The North Brooklyn Boat Club expects to bring about 30 canoes and kayaks to a slice of land by the Pulaski Bridge at Ash Street this coming May. The spot will also include an outdoor environmental education center for students to learn about the dramatic history of pollution at Newtown Creek — the inlet that separates northern Brooklyn from Queens. … This summer the club secured $25,000 from the Hudson River Park Foundation, and their future permanent boathouse, run by the Greenpoint Waterfront Association for Parks and Planning, will receive up to $5 million in state money.”
