Weekend on the Waterfront
The Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club kicks off its 2006 season on Saturday. The Dredgers, who have led literally thousands of canoe trips down the Gowanus Canal, also lead walking and bicycle tours around undeveloped parts of the waterfront.
The Sebago Canoe Club is hosting an open house on Saturday June 3, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Located in Canarsie along the Paerdegat Basin, across from Jamaica Bay, the club is home to many kayakers, canoists, sailors and rowers.
Transportation Alternatives sponsors the 2nd Annual Tour de Brooklyn on Sunday, June 4th. Starting from the Herbert Von King Park (aka Tompkins Park) in Bed-Stuy at 8:00 a.m., the 18 mile tour takes a scenic tour of the waterfront from Greenpoint through DUMBO and Red Hook. Its a slow, family ride, so if you want to race this isn't for you.
And in Coney Island, there are a few events taking place this weekend.
On Friday, June 2 at 10 p.m., Burlesque at the Beach at Sideshows by the Seashore
On Saturday, June 3rd, at 8 p.m., Spike Lee's He Got Game is playing at the Coney Island Museum as part of Coney Island's Saturday Night Film Series. Tickets are $5 and the popcorn is free.
