Scheduled for August 16, the Statue of Liberty Swim is a 1.2-kilometer counterclockwise swim around Liberty Island, the home of the Statue of Liberty. Taking place on Friday evening, it is a fantastic way to enjoy the island after hours.
NYC Swim will provide ferry transportation for swimmers, land-based volunteers, and ticketed guests to and from the event. We will also host a post race BBQ on the island.
