2016 Rowing has begun. Meet us on Tuesdays at 4:30pm at our boat container on the southbound FDR service road between 95th and 96th Streets or at the boat departure point at 96th Street and the Esplanade at 5pm. We provide a life jacket and guidance as you provide your signature to our rowing waiver form.

About Us

East River C.R.E.W. seeks to impart a love for, and an understanding of, the waters of the East River community of New York City.

Through educational and recreational activities, we will promote the stewardship of our waters. We pull together for the river.

Education & Recreation

East River C.R.E.W. actively works with organizations like the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary Program, the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, to plan the future of our river, as well as teach responsible stewardship of it today.

We combine opportunities to learn about conservation, ecology and the environment with the serenity and adventure of rowing on our urban estuary.

Get Involved
