The 12 Best Swimming Spots in New York City

View as Map

The only thing better than camping out in an air conditioned space this afternoon might be going to the pool. A few weeks ago, we asked you to name the best swimming pools in New York City. Curbed intern Arabella Watters has compiled the suggestions, plus a few of our favorites, into the map below. Okay, so maybe they aren't as cool as the swimming options in 1930s New York?but we've also got a few weeks to go before we match the 1936 stat of 26 consecutive days above 90 degrees. Got a favorite swimming spot we haven't mentioned? Add it in the comments or write in to the tipline. Stay cool, folks; we're off for a swim.
