Rowing a boat on the lake in Central Park is one of many quintessential NYC experiences!  Join a fun group of members and friends as we enjoy a peaceful hour of socializing and take in the sights and sounds that surround the lake.  Following the boat trip we will find a nice place to sit and enjoy a picnic lunch.

How it works:  

  • The group will meet on the lake side of the Angel of the Water Statue at Bethesda Fountain/Terrace at 10am sharp.
  • We will walk over together to the boathouse and get into the boats.  You can all take turns rowing or designate a boat captain.  (4 persons per boat)
  • We will have one hour to explore the lake.
  • Following the boat ride we will find a nice area to sit and enjoy lunch. You may bring your own or you can join in on the NYSN Pizza Party picnic at noon (you must register separately)

Cost $20 General admission / $15 Lifetime VIP members: Includes; boat rental and host fee contribution.
