Circumnavigation Around Old Oyster Reef

The Statue of Liberty Swim in New York City is one of the more interesting, symbolic, and unique open water swims in America.

The Statue of Liberty Swim is a circumnavigation around Liberty Island that is actually the remnants of an giant oyster reef known formerly as Big Oyster Island.

For Americans, the statue is an iconic symbol of freedom and democracy with profound meaning for a country populated by immigrants from around the world.

The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States. Built upon oysters.
