The Bronx River Alliance has worked diligently for more than 10 years to clean to the Bronx River with an ultimate goal to make it swimmable. They haven’t gotten there yet but it certainly is a great place to paddle. Every fall they host the Uptown Soiree, generally at the Bronx Zoo. It more than an annual fundraiser. It’s an opportunity to meet Bronx River friends and celebrate their accomplishments. Here are photos from the 20115 and 2016 events on Flickr.
