A great article on a school that teaches confidence and leadership by connecting students to the water around them. The New York Harbor School’s maritime focus includes basic swimming lessons, hands-on sailing and navigation training on the Lettie G. Howard, “a 125-foot schooner that was used as a New England fishing boat 100 years ago,” and rowing trips on the East river.

A nice, handy guide to beaches and lakes close to the city. It also mentions a few public and private pools at the end and points to a guide for pools by personality type. Fun, if not necessarily comprehensive.
