Rowing for All

Row With Us

Harlem River Community Rowing is a volunteer-driven rowing program in New York City. We are committed to providing quality, affordable, accessible rowing opportunities for all New Yorkers and to helping to expand and enhance access to the Harlem River for on-water physical fitness and recreation, in particular for the communities of Northern Manhattan and the West and South Bronx. We hope to see you on the water soon!

Coronavirus update

Harlem River Community Rowing values the health and well-being of our rowers. We’re postponing the start of our 2020 program—planned for early April—until it’s safe for people to participate.

Please take all recommendations for social distancing extremely seriously, and follow all medical and health advisories. We want everyone to be ready to get on the water when the time comes.

We’re hoping for a Memorial Day start at the earliest, though it may be much later. Please check back here for updates.
