The Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy announced the election of Craig Kanarick to the organization’s Board of Directors. The election took place at the Conservancy’s Dec. 8 board meeting.
Kanarick is currently the CEO of New York Cruise Lines, owner and operator of the iconic Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises, along with other marine-based brands such as New York Water Taxi, North River Lobster Company and La Barca Cantina.
Prior to that, he was the co-founder and CEO of Mouth Foods, an online retailer of indie and small-batch foods based in DUMBO. He is also well known as the co-founder of Razorfish, a pioneering digital agency and a significant influence in the nascent internet industry.
Kanarick also serves on the boards of Lab/Shul and Healthy Living Market and Café. He holds undergraduate degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree from MIT, and resides in Cobble Hill.
“I am so honored and excited to be part of this wonderful organization. I’m an active supporter of the New York waterfront and a frequent visitor to the park, which is an inspiration nation-wide and a model of how outstanding and well-programmed an urban park can be,” he said.
“We are honored to welcome Craig Kanarick to the Conservancy Board of Directors,” said Chris Coffey, Conservancy board chairman. “Despite another challenging year, we are eager to build on this season’s return to programming with an even stronger lineup of events in 2022. Craig’s extensive waterfront experience and longtime dedication to the Brooklyn community will be invaluable as we think about new creative partnerships and exciting opportunities in the days ahead.”
Craig Kanarick is the latest in a talented and dedicated group of volunteers and supporters who have joined the Conservancy’s Board of Directors in 2021 including Matthew Rhys, Keri Russell, Jen Votaw, Che Chisholm, Jay Mann, Dee Poku-Spalding, Alex Stanton and Antonia Yuille Williams.
Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy serves as Brooklyn Bridge Park’s main programming partner, according to its website. Through a yearly lineup of hundreds of free and low-cost cultural, recreational, and educational events, its programs help the park reach its full potential as a dynamic and vibrant public space for all.
