The Village Community Boathouse offers free community boat building sessions on winter afternoons.
The mission of the Village Community Boathouse is to promote awareness of the public ownership of our urban waterways and to provide the means for everyone to access them; to introduce the public, and especially young people, to the joys of rowing and sailing Whitehall Gigs in New York Harbor and to revive the arts of small-boat seamanship and boatbuilding; to advance the environmental stewardship of the harbor and the estuary; and to foster a tradition of maritime hospitality and fellowship.
