WACCABUC, N.Y. --  One Westchester locale ranks among the best places in the world to swim -- at least according to Singer/Songwriter Loudon Wainwright III.

The former Bedford resident recently published an opinion piece in The New York Times about his beloved Lake Wacabuc. He mentions Castle Rock, in particular, where "generations of beer-chugging teenagers have leapt straight into midair, to savor the thrilling three-second, 50-foot plummet."

His other top favorite swimming spots include The 40 Foot just south of central Dublin, the Andrew “Boy” Charlton on the shore of Woolloomooloo Bay in Sydney, Australia; Palm Beach, also in Sydney; The Highgate in Hampstead Heath, North London; The Western Baths Club in Hillhead, Glasgow; the Deep Eddy Pool. In Austin, TX; Barton Springs Pool, also in Austin; East Beach in Watch Hill, R.I. and Aquatic Park in San Francisco.
