Top 10 Rooftop Pools in New York City

Beat the summer heat by bathing in one of these rooftop pools while soaking in panoramic skyline views. Elevate yourself above street noise into a serene realm of poolside peace in one of CityRealty’s Top 10 Rooftop Pools in New York City.

#1 - Brooklyn Point, 1 City Point

Condo in Downtown Brooklyn

Brooklyn’s tallest building culminates with a goosebump-inducing experience atop the 68-story slab. A sundeck faces an infinity pool, where water seems to flow right off the skyscraper’s edge that looks upon an unobstructed Manhattan panorama.

#2 - Central Park Tower, 225 West 57th Street

The tallest apartment building this side of the Atlantic Ocean reserves its largest outdoor space for an expansive outdoor deck that comes with a lawn, lounge chairs, curtained cabanas, and one of the city’s largest outdoor rooftop pools.


#3 - American Copper Buildings, 626 First Avenue

No fee rental in Murray Hill

Extell Development Company’s Hudson Yards’ 555 Ten offers luxury rental apartments and a slew of amenities to fit. Located 56 stories up, the observation roof deck features a southwest-facing swimming pool that almost feels like an extension of the Hudson River.

#10 - The Churchill, 300 East 40th Street

Condop in Murray Hill

As a child, Philip Burnbaum was raised on the Lower East Side, where families took to the rooftops to escape stifling summer heat in the tenements. When he became one of New York’s preeminent high-rise condo architects of the twentieth century, Birnbaum used his childhood experience to animate rooftops across the city. When you dip into the spacious pool atop the 33-story Churchill, you know that it was conceived by someone that knows how to enjoy a New York rooftop to the fullest.
