Kerbs BoathouseThe Highlights
East of Conservatory Water, the copper-roofed boathouse features a cafe with refreshments.
Inside the Boathouse model yachts are housed. On pleasant days, a variety of model ships, most remote-controlled, glide across the water. The sailboats are either privately owned or rented at a cart provided by the boathouse. On Saturdays, beginning around 10:00 am, races are held on the water. It's at this spot that Stuart Little, the beloved character of E.B. White's story, sailed his fictional sailboat to victory. The spot has also been a gathering spot for birders searching for signs of the famous Fifth Avenue red-tailed hawks.
