Rose Pitonof Swim Mentioned in the NYTimes

The Rose Pitonof Centennial Swim was mentioned in last Sunday’s NYTimes as part of the open-water swimming renaissance.

“In August, six competitors will try a 17-mile swim from the shores of Kips Bay in Manhattan to Coney Island in Brooklyn, a route that 17-year-old Rose Pitonof breast-stroked 100 years ago, to the cheers of 50,000 spectators, according to news coverage at the time. Deanne Draeger, the organizer of this year’s event, swam the course solo last year.”
