NYC Swim

This morning, I caught the #10 Express bus from Staten Island going into Manhattan. After exiting the bus at Battery Park, I began walking by Battery City on the boardwalk along the Hudson.  Soon I came upon this event, called NYC Swim that had just begun in South Cove:  thirty-eight swimmers attempting to swim around Manhattan Island.  It was a perfect swimming day–low humidity and about 80 degrees or so.

I made the above video and took a few pictures.  I also put the video on YouTube.  The YouTube version is less shaky and has a different sound track, but you’ve also got to tolerate ads.  To review the race results.
