Trinity Danish Young People's Society

Bronx, New York
Managed by The Swim Guide

Along Eastchester Bay in the northeast corner of the Bronx, a handful of private beach clubs pepper the coastline, offering their members ideal slices of waterfront property overlooking City Island. The Trinity Danish Young People's Society is one of these and is located on Dean Avenue off of Lafayette Avenue. The old club was built from surplus barracks that were left over after World War I. A group of 20 Danish families bought the waterfront property in the early 1900s and officially christened it a beach club around 1915. Little by little, the old members died off, and by World War II there were few Danes in the area to take their place. Even though there is a lot of history here, there is little evidence of anything remotely Danish about it. This club maintains a family atmosphere and new members are very easily integrated into club activities. It is a small club which makes it very easy to feel at home.
