Swimming in August
Due to the closing of the Dodge Fitness Center for most of August, there have been many questions about where to swim. Here are two possible answers:
Riverbank State Park Pool: Very close to campus at 145th and Riverside, and it's 50m! Offers lap swim for $3 a day. More info on the facility and prices here, and the schedule for the pool here.
Lasker Pool: Located on the north side of Central Park, you've probably run by it hundreds of times. It's free! They have morning and night lap swims. More info here.
Congratulations NYC Triathlon racers!You raced well, you represented your city well, you kept the Ivy League Championship right here where it belongs, and you looked dang good doing it! A big thanks goes out to all those who showed up to cheer on your teammates as well, there were poster boards, cow bells, and even body paint (you know who you are)!
