Are you a resident of Inwood and Washington Heights? Come experience the unique sport of rowing!

Join Row New York for a free introductory rowing class on Saturday September 22––no experience or swimming ability required.

What to expect:

You’ll spend a beautiful Saturday with us both on and off the water. We’ll teach you the basics of the sport before heading out on the Harlem River using our stable-bottom barges. Lessons will run every hour for approximately 45 minutes.

Join us afterward to learn about our community programs for youth and people with disabilities. We’ll also be discussing our plan to build a community boathouse for you and your neighborhood.

This is a family-friendly event. You must be at least 12 years old to row on the water.

Please note: Space is limited; please RSVP by contacting Meghan Alvarez at
