East River Ferries Getting Bigger; BKLYN Designs Returns

THE WATER?Because everyone would much prefer to take a boat than the subway during the summer, the East River Ferry is swapping out its normal rides for bigger boats. Beginning tomorrow, ERF will be operating 399-passenger boats on Saturdays and Sundays with the 40-minute loop starting at 9 a.m. For comparison, regular boats seat only 149 people.

DUMBO?Those looking to create a casa de la Brooklyn need to clear their schedules for May 10-12. The annual BKLYN Design show is back, featuring furnishings, lighting, and decor made or designed in the city's coolest borough. All 35 designers were handpicked by a jury of editors from shelter magazines, and there will be dozens of events?from yoga classes to studio tours to kids craft workshops?throughout the three-day exhibition.
