The Brooklyn Bridge Swim: In the Middle of the East River

The escort boats are all lined up below giving us a safe path to swim thru. They were great at stopping the river traffic but they couldn't do anything about the currents!

It really was a beautiful day for a swim under the bridge and a very unique view.

Keep on swimming, they can't keep the East River closed ALL day!

If you look real close, you'll see Mike (front of this pack, left arm all the way out of the water).

We've already made our left turn under the Brooklyn Bridge and we're in the home stretch now heading for the finish line in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Ironically enough, Brooklyn Bridge Park is NOT under the Brooklyn Bridge but closer to the Manhattan Bridge in the background.
