Description: Join us as we cruise the Canal aboard the Water Taxi and introduce newcomers and old fans alike to the secrets of this now legendary waterway. See the changes as the Canal and its neighborhood experience a revival and hear accounts of the area’s environment, history, industrial architecture and weigh its future prospects.

This cruise was rescheduled due to Hamilton Ave Bridge reconstruction (beginning June 30), and because of it, this will be the only BCUE Gowanus cruise of the summer.

See you on the canal.
