There aren’t many appealing activities that revolve around the phrase “It’s fun! But just make sure to keep your mouth shut the whole time” but kayaking is one of them and you can do it for free this weekend and next at the very spiffy Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Just show up in clothes you don’t mind getting wet (or subjecting to Kramer’s famous “East River Smell”) from 11-3 at Pier 1 on Saturday and 10-2 at Main Street on Sunday and aquatic adventure can be yours. The only requirements are that you know how to swim and that anyone under 18 is accompanied by a legal guardian. Best news? You’ll exercise enough to justify trying a macaroni-topped hot dog and other symbols of gluttony at its best at one of the Park’s many vendors afterward… and after all, isn’t that what exercise is really all about?
