What's a half-sunken yellow submarine doing in an obscure waterway of NYC?
Join New York Adventure Club for an aquatic-themed exploration at Coney Island Creek, where low tide reveals the bones of old ships, boatloads of flotsam, and a lone yellow submarine.
Sunday, June 16
1 PM - 3 PM
Led by Underwater New York, our two-mile hike alongside one of New York’s most elusive waterways will include:
An overview of Coney Island Creek and the abandoned canal system it was supposed to be a part of
Stories and myths surrounding this one-time rumrunners’ haven, and ships & people that met their fate in the hidden inlet
A hike along the waterway, from the ship graveyard in the northwestern section to the yellow submarine on the southern shore
Sweeping views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge from Calvert Vaux Park
This excursion would make a great Father's Day gift. Bring your dads and wear long pants and boots (or thick-soled sturdy shoes), as we'll be walking across uneven terrain and through high grass at times. Don't forget your water bottle!
