Little Red Lighthouse Swim

This 5.85-Mile swim from Clinton Cove (Pier 96, at 56th Street) to 165th Street, within view of the Little Red Lighthouse, is one of our oldest and most popular events and features views of upper Manhattan, the Palisades, and the George Washington Bridge. Thanks to the expected tidal assist, this is a great way to get started with longer-distance swimming. Afterward, join your swim buddies for an informal, pay-as-you-go party at Coogan's Restaurant (4015 Broadway at 169th Street).

Date:09/26/2009 (Saturday)
