Top 10 Best Indoor Swimming Pools in NYC Apartment Buildings

A dip in an indoor pool, sheltered from sweltering summer heat, is pleasant no matter where. However, not all pools are created equal. Some pull ahead through awesome breadth, luxuriant finishes, exquisite design, full-ranging services, panoramic views, or any combination thereof. CityRealty pools these disparate qualities into a definitive list of choicest indoor pools in New York’s apartment buildings.

#1 - American Copper Buildings, 626 First Avenue

No fee rental in Murray Hill

Skybridges between apartment buildings are a rare sight in New York City. Skybridges with residential amenities, even more so. And when it comes to a skybridge equipped with 75-foot pool, nestled within a sunlit, exquisitely-trimmed interior, with panoramic views of the East River on one side and the Empire State Building and Hudson Yards on the other, there is no place like American Copper.

#2 - The Woolworth Tower Residences, 2 Park Place

Condo in Tribeca

In 1913, the Woolworth Building awed the city with its record-setting height, majestic Neo-Gothic architecture, and an array of amenities, near-unprecedented for an office building, which included a seven-foot-deep swimming pool. Thanks to a renovation that came with a condo conversion of the landmark’s top floors, the pool’s stylized Neoclassical trimming looks even more opulent than it did a hundred years ago.

#3 - 35 Hudson Yards, 500 West 33rd Street

Condo in Midtown West

The centerpiece of the 60,000-square-foot Equinox Club fitness center at 35 Hudson Yard is a 75-foot saltwater pool, set within a spacious interior where floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Hudson River.


#4 - 15 Central Park West

Condo in Central Park West

New York’s premier condominium, located at the gateway to Central Park and designed by Robert A.M. Stern, Dean Emeritus of the Yale School of Architecture, delivers a fittingly posh pool to satisfy its star-studded resident roster. The 75-foot lap pool sits beneath a coffered, barrel-vaulted ceiling centered upon a mirrored array. Passages between limestone-clad columns lead to a spa, fitness center, and steam rooms.

#5 - One Hundred East Fifty Third Street, 100 East 53rd Street

Condo in Midtown East

Foster+Partners, one of the world’s preeminent architecture firms, took design cues from nearby Modernist landmarks, such as the Seagram Building, Lever House, and Citicorp Center, and combined them with austere yet luxuriant finishes to create a condominium of Zen-like sensibilities. Swimmers take laps past wood-slat walls, a bamboo grove, and gently-angled, double-height windows that look high above Lexington Avenue.

#7 - Two Waterline Square, 400 West 61st Street

Condo in Riverside Dr./West End Ave.

The 82-foot length of the lap pool at Waterline Square is a sufficient match for one of the most feature-packed athletic centers in any of the city’s apartment buildings. Despite its imposing size, the pool hall retains cozy domesticity through subtle recessed lighting, floral-patterned ceiling niches, textured stone panels at the walls, and a flowing layout that smoothly transitions between the pool, lounges, and spa areas.

#8 - 56 Leonard Street

Condo in Tribeca

When designing the avant-garde “Jenga tower” at 56 Leonard, architects at Herzog & de Meuron took full advantage of the tower’s open plan, staggered form, and austere concrete to craft a fittingly unique poo setting. Rounded corners lend elegance to the long lap pool, where textured concrete and mesh-metal ceiling contrast with sheer, floor-to-ceiling windows. An adjacent outdoor sundeck perches high above narrow Tribeca streets. A corner-facing hot tub and a sauna suite, adjacent to the fitness center, complete the experience.

#9 - One Hundred Barclay Tribeca, 100 Barclay Street

Condo in Tribeca

The 1927 Art Deco masterpiece, described by the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission as "one of the most significant structures in skyscraper design," reopened in 2015 as a luxury condominium. While its spectacular lobby was renovated to its original glory, the 85-foot-long lap pool and the 330-square-foot children’s wading pool, both part of an extensive fitness center and spa, are wholly new additions.

#10 - 111 Murray Street

Condo in Tribeca

The linear interior design of the pool at 111 Murray pleasantly harmonizes with the flowing curves that define the exterior of the slender, 56-story tower. Wood-slatted walls and ceilings play against the stone paneling at the floor and accent walls around the spacious pool, creating a serene oasis equally fit for poolside relaxation and for a multi-lap swimming workout.
