Take to the water aboard a New York Water Taxi, with tour guides organized by Working Harbor Committee, to learn about the origins of Brooklyn’s Erie Basin as the Erie Canal’s ultimate destination and its current role as a vital resource for maritime industry on this guided tour of Red Hook's Erie Basin and our South Brooklyn working waterfront, departing from and returning to the Red Hook Dock at Fairway. This tour will be led Mitch Waxman of The Newtown Pentacle & the Working Harbor Committee.

This is the third of three boat tour dates and five performance events in Canal to Coast: Reuniting the Waters a program of the Waterfront Alliance made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew M.
