Columbia Rowing Boathouses
The 1929 Boathouse stands immediately next to the Gould-Remmer Boathouse, which was originally constructed in 1895 as the Gould Boathouse at 116th Street on the Hudson River. It was relocated to its current site, and in 1989, was renamed to honor the late Eugene H. Remmer ‘40CC, ‘41SEAS, a varsity oarsman and longtime supporter of Columbia Athletics.
The buildings sit at one of the most picturesque locations in New York City. They are located aside beautiful Inwood Hill Park, overlooking the confluence of the Harlem and Hudson Rivers and the famed Spuyten Duyvil.
The 1929 Boathouse is part of a larger facility, Baker Athletics Complex, which houses the Dick Savitt Tennis Center, Robert K. Kraft at Lawrence A. Wien Stadium, which is used for football and lacrosse; the Columbia Softball Complex, Columbia Field Hockey Venue; Columbia Soccer Stadium and Robertson Field at Satow Baseball Stadium. The facility provides a close, family-like atmosphere to be enjoyed by Columbia’s student-athletes.
