Rowing Around Manhattan for ROCKING THE BOAT | South Bronx Kids Build Boats. Every year in the early fall, over 100 people from all around the city of New York and beyond join together to row 30 miles around the island of Manhattan and raise money for Rocking the Boat. (This is "Rocking Manhattan"). Rocking the Boat empowers young people from the South Bronx to develop the self-confidence to set ambitious goals and gain the skills necessary to achieve them. Students work together to build wooden boats, learn to row and sail, and restore local urban waterways, revitalizing their community while creating better lives for themselves.
