Really sad. Unfortunately, these lunch counters and diner are becoming a thing of the past.
This was the second Rose Pitonof Swim.
What I remember most about this day was our boat having mechanical problems and having to jump on another, much smaller boat while we were precariously tied up to a wharf near Red Hook.
It was all good fun, and the captain provided ice cold, tasty beverages after the race was over–for the ride back to Sheepshead Bay.
