Cruise Ye Olde Gowanus on Sunday

Gowanus, Sunday Morning

Ever wanted to see the Gowanus Canal from the water? Of course, you can always do that in a canoe courtesy of the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, but here's a chance to do it in a boat. The Brooklyn Center for the Urban Environment, which sponsors many great tours all year long, is offering its Gowanus Canal Cruise on Sunday, Sept. 30 from 9:30AM-12 Noon. The tour will be led by Dan Wiley and the boat will leave from the Fulton Ferry Landing, opposite the River Cafe, where the New York Water Taxi stop is. You have to pre-pay and pre-register and can do so my calling Ruth Edebohls at 718-788-8500 at Ext. 208. You can also email edebohls (at) bcue (dot) org. They write:
Join us as we cruise the Canal and introduce newcomers and old fans alike to the secrets of this now legendary waterway. See the changes in the Canal and its neighborhood and hear tales of the area's environment, history, industry and planning. Check-in will take place at 9:30 am, with the vessel departing promptly at 10:00. This is the rescheduled summer tour that was canceled due to Hamilton Ave Bridge construction, now complete until next summer.
More information is available at BCUE's website.
