Sailing / Yacht Club
It was in the early 1880's when a group of young men, residing in Manhattan, who shared in common love of the water and boating, pooled their resources and purchased a rowboat which they transported to the Harlem River on a milk wagon. Equipped with a sail, the boat provided great sport for the handful of members during their weekends. In due course the group was enlarged, additional sail boats were purchased and an empty store was rented in the vicinity of 125th Street where members held periodic meetings.
