Join the Village Community Boathouse for Community Boatbuilding of traditional Whitehall gigs: larger wooden rowboats for four rowers and a coxswain (captain).
We build and maintain these boats at our workshop on Pier 40. But we also row them throughout the summer twice a week.
The Village Community Boathouse also offers free community rowing on Sundays starting at noon and on Tuesdays starting 5:30 p.m., from April 24 through November 15, 2017.
This event is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary!
Enter at West Houston Street and the Hudson River Greenway. The Village Community Boathouse is located at the south side of the pier towards the end. Enter through orange door.
