Riverside Park Tune Up Swim

A swim-only option in conjunction with the Aquathlon: Stars and Stripes, this swim takes you a mile down the Hudson, from Riverside Park South to Hudson River Park. Plus, it's the last NYC Swim event until September, so come cool off in the river while you can! Everyone is invited to an informal, pay-as-you-go meal afterward at the 70th Street Pier Plaza.
