"There's a place at the edge of the Bronx where boys jump from unbelievable heights into the Harlem River below. It’s a summertime tradition and a rite of passage. Guys have been doing it for generations."

I first saw some dudes jumping off C-Rock last summer when I was with my girlfriend Natalia taking a walk in Inwood Park. At first I actually though someone was trying to commit suicide, that is till I saw a Whole Bunch of people jumping in. Ever since I've wanted to do it, but just didn't get a chance to last summer. SO, I thought I'd post the info here and see if there's any other crazy assholes willing to join me.

We'll be meeting at Noon at Darling Coffee and then walking over to the Spuyten Duyvil section of the Bronx and then to the infamous C-Rock. After a jump or two, assuming we survive and don't get arrested, we'll go back to my girlfriend's flat to detox ourselves in the shower and have a few brews at the best Irish bar in Inwood - the Piper's Kilt.

    So, now for the bad news... My buddy just called me and told me that after talking to a few of his friends who have jumped before, that it's best NOT to jump after or during rain, because the rain washes more garbage into the river, which tends to accumulate along the river's edge, which is right where we'll be jumping. SO, for safety, he said we should wait and do it another day, because we don't wanna have an accident where someone lands on a floating bottle or something...

      LOL! I would in a sec but I have my 8 yo daughter that day. Not inclined to be sneaking her around railroad tracks, evading 5-O, and taking her for a dip (perhaps when she turns 16-17).
