Fort Greene Park, New York, NY
Mark your calendars and break out the picnic blankets! After a successful launch last year, we are back in Fort Greene for our second annual VCNY picnic!

This family- and pet-friendly event is a great way to catch up with longtime Vassar friends and make new ones. We will have some light refreshments but please pack a lunch and/or snacks to share.

Since we can’t control the clouds or rains, expect this event to be “ON” if it is sunny and above 70°F. Otherwise, keep an eye out for a rain-date announcement. Either way, we know there will be a lot going on this weekend in New York and hope you can stop by with your family-of-choice to say hello. Bring friends, kids, pets—all are welcome! Find us by the Vassar balloons.

Time: 12:00pm ET

**We hope to find a spot in the middle of the park by the east entrance (along Washington Park, which is the street that runs along the east edge of Fort Greene Park). If you are driving, we recommend circling around for parking spots under the BQE or try any of the garages in downtown Brooklyn.

Please email newyork@vassarclub.org if you have any questions or need any accommodations.

Outside Clark Street 2/3 Station
Join us as we once again team up with the Bowery Boys Walks for a historical tour.

We begin in Brooklyn Heights, where we’ll explore charming streets and hear about legendary Brooklynites who have called this district home. We’ll continue to Brooklyn Bridge Park and Fulton Ferry Landing with stunning views of the Manhattan skyline.

We’ll then tour DUMBO, an industrial wasteland transformed into one of NYC’s trendiest districts. After exploring its history and architecture, we’ll end at Time Out Market, home to 23 of NY’s finest food vendors.

Along with our tour guide, we will be joined by Craig Nelson ’95, a freelance writer, editor and project manager, and officially licensed New York City tour guide. He currently manages in-person and virtual tours with Bowery Boys Walks.

The tour will be fully outdoors. As we will be walking close together, we request that attendees be fully vaccinated and boosted.

Cost: $30

Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early so we can start on time.
