Standing in solidarity with Puerto Rico.

Season 1, Ep.4 : Carl Persak, Brooklyn Boatworks



Carl Persak (and his partner Jeremy Wurmfeld) are two of the last standing boat designers in Brooklyn. A graduate of the Webb Institute on Long Island, Persak not only designs world class yachts, but he and Jeremy started Brooklyn Boatworks, a non-profit dedicated to teaching kids around New York City how to build boats and sail. In this episode, CB Radio interviewed Persak on a sultry summer morning in Brooklyn Bridge Park, steps from his DUMBO offices…and the water. Among many things, we spoke about the finer points of boat design and what boat building can teach us. CB Radio was inspired by the research, design, and development of Citizen Bridge, a temporary floating bridge to reconnect New Yorkers to their waterways. In order to learn about New York City’s waterways, Nancy Nowacek artist and project founder, engaged the expertise and advice of writers, architects, artists, industrial designers, bridge engineers, as well as the experts and enthusiasts that comprise New York City’s maritime community. From the Harbor School to the Waterfront Museum and Showboat Barge, CB Radio—in collaboration with Jake Nussbaum, artist and Clocktower Radio Station Manager— introduces listeners to the people and ideas that define New York City’s harbor.
