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!
