CALLING ALL PADDLERS & OPEN SPACE ADVOCATES!

Join (human-powered) boaters and fill the extraordinary Bushwick Inlet to show the City that we refuse to to let the promised park space become another doormat for skyscraper development.

We invite all the NYC area board clubs to join us in kayaks, canoes, outriggers, SUPs and rowing gigs and raft together to fill the remarkably calm and tranquil embayment on the Brooklyn side of the East River.

On land, we will be encircling with caution tape, art bombing and flying protest kites over the 28 acres of land promised by the City as a park in 2005 and now threatened by imminent sale to developers. Let’s inundate our park with people, boats and art!

Please join us by water or land! This last remaining open space in North Brooklyn is too precious to lose. Occupy it with us!
