NYC SWIM

    Join the Swimmer Waitlist

    First there was the Manhattan Island Swim, then came the Governors Island Swim. Now you can be a part of NYC Swim Events' newest circumnavigation at the third annual Statue of Liberty (Liberty Island) Swim — a 1.2-kilometer counterclockwise swim around Liberty Island, the home of the Statue of Liberty. It's a great way to kick off a summer weekend!

    All swimmers and registered guests are welcome to attend the post-event barbecue on the island; ticket deadline is Wednesday, June 22, at noon. [Tickets and Details]

    As of noon on Wednesday, June 22, guest enrollment is full and closed out. Barbecue tickets are still available for those already registered to be on the island.
