Join the Village Community Boathouse for Community Rowing in traditional Whitehall gigs, captained by experienced New York Harbor coxswains. The Village Community Boathouse offers free community rowing on Sundays at noon and on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m., through November 12, 2017.

Community rowing is free and open to all; no experience or reservations necessary, and lifejackets will be provided. Children (under 18) must be accompanied by a parent. All participants must sign a liability waiver.

Please note: It is very important that you arrive between noon and 12:30 p.m., as the Village Community Boathouse pair their boats, coxswains, and rowers by 12:30. Boats leave right after for the afternoon. In some cases, the Villiage Community Boathouse will have additional boats leaving at a later time but the chances to get out on a boat then are much slimmer. Please check the Villiage Community Boathouse's social media feeds on Facebook or Twitter for possible last-minute changes due to weather or other circumstances. Or, call (212) 229-2059.

About Free Community Rowing
The Community Rows are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats that Village Community Boathouse builds onsite. The rows last, depending on river conditions and rower level experience, between one and three hours.Most of these rows have mixed crews with those that have never been on the river before and some old hands. Visit the Village Community Boathouse's website for more information and photos!

About Village Community Boathouse
Village Community Boathouse is a 501(c)(3) non-profit run by volunteers, based on the south side of Pier 40 on the Hudson River. While our community rowing programs are free, our facilities, boats and equipment require regular upkeep and repair. Your donations make our program possible.

Join us for a film screening of a documentary by Hank Linhart, an accomplished media artist.

This video tells a story about a remote corner of Queens, NY.

Blissville is the former name of the tiny triangle bounded by the Newtown Creek, the Long Island Expressway, and Calvary Cemetery. In addition to the world’s largest fortune cookie factory, there is a factory with the exclusive rights for making replicas of the Statue of Liberty, a sushi factory, an Afghan bakery and a giant car crusher.

Through street interviews, the film investigates the origin of the name of Blissville, and the character(s) of the town. This is also a story about the resiliency of a community remarkably rich in nationalities and ethnic backgrounds, featuring diverse residential neighbors living in close proximity with active industries.

Plant Patterns features the work of Adam Frezza & Terri Chiao, Adrienne Elise Tarver, Karin Haas, Liesl Pfeffer, and Nick Wildermuth. The artists use plants’ impressive natural characteristics as a means to explore various themes in their graphic works. Domestic and wild flora have provided artists with inspiration for centuries. The diversity and multitude of plant colors, shapes, and repetitive forms, which evolved to lure pollinators, caution predators, and promote regeneration, are naturally appealing to artists’ sensibilities.

During our novice Crew Camp your child will have the totally unique experience of learning to row on the Harlem River in Manhattan. Our three-week camp focuses on fun, fitness, and teamwork while prioritizing safety on the water. Campers are lead by experienced coaches while learning basic rowing techniques and boat moving skills, on and off the water.

Pillow Talk
Doris Day (scoring her only Oscar nomination) plays a single New York interior decorator sharing a telephone party line (remember them?) with a bachelor composer (Rock Hudson). The playboy’s over active social life tends to hog the phone line, which leads to mutual loathing. The romantic comedy won an Oscar for Original Story and Screenplay beating out such heavyweights as Wild Strawberries and North By Northwest. Tony Randall and Thelma Ritter provide droll comic support for Day and Hudson who were successfully teamed up for two more romps. (1959) 105 MIN. (NR) (UNIVERSAL)
