NYC Swim will host swimmers from around the world for its annual Manhattan Island Marathon Swim on June 18th.

The archives of the NYC Swim are a wonderful resource. From the first female swimmer around the island in 1921, Amelia ‘Millie’ Gade, to the generations who followed, its archives are filled with fascinating facts, times, people and conditions of the swim.
