Welcome to East River C.R.E.W.

We are a grassroots nonprofit organization that offers a portal into adventure, friendship, hands-on learning, exploration, new perspectives, advocacy and a whole lot of fun.

We offer free non-competitive rowing and learning opportunities about the East River to people of all ages who do not need to be athletic nor have previous rowing experience. Whether you’re a first-timer and want to try your hand at a new endeavor, interested in volunteering or seeking to re-experience the waters around New York City, we wholeheartedly welcome you to join us!
